Central Bank Rates
This area contains the central bank interest rates for the 6 most influential central banks.
Currencies are always quoted in pairs. The first currency is called the "base", and the second is called the "counter". People usually pick a base currency that matches their own currency. Listed under the Currency Rates section, you will see the base currency and the timestamp. Next, you'll see the rate table, containing three columns:
- 1. The Currency Unit (the counter currency).
- 2. How much base currency you need to buy 1 unit of the counter currency.
- 3. How much counter currency you need to buy 1 unit of the base currency.
In the example below, the selected base currency is USD United States Dollars. If you wanted to know the Euro rate, you would search for "EUR Euro" under the "Currency Unit" heading.
