BankersAlgo API Exchange Rates

We use the EU Central bank rates as a reference. A central bank manages states' currency, money supply, and interest rates. 

How to convert a currency using BankersAlgo rates ?

Consumers and companies compare the relative prices of goods and services using the currency exchange rates.

As an example, let's convert USD  to EUR. Our API is based on the EURO. If the exchange rate to USD is 1.20 and you want to convert an amount of 100USD. The formula is to divide the $100 by 1.149115 the result would be 87,023492 in that case.

currency conversion USD EURO

As an other example, let's convert US Dollars to Yuan. Our API is based on the EURO. If the exchange rate to USD is 1.149115, the one to CNY is 7.949464 and you want to convert an amount of 100USD. The formula is to multiply the $100 by 7.949464 and divide it by 1.149115 the result would be 691,790117 in that case.

API currency converter USD YUAN

To make it even more simple, we provide a currency exchange calculation API, just indicate the amount you want to convert, the currency_from and the currency_to. Please exam our documentation for more informations.

About the global Currency Exchange Rate System

There are two types of exchange rate system : a fixed exchange rate system and a floating exchange rate system.

Fixed Exchange Rates

A fixed exchange rate country's currency to another country's currency. The government of a country doesn't let the exchange rate change in accordance with the demand and supply for the currency The purpose of a fixed rate system is to maintain a country's currency value within a very narrow band.

The floating exchange rate

The UK operates with a floating exchange rate system. This means that the UK currency is market determined. If the demand for sterling rises relative to supply, then the value of the pound will increase. If the supply of pounds on the foreign exchange market increases relative to demand, then the pound will fall (depreciate) in value.

The foreign exchange market (FOREX)

FOREX Currencies

A Foreign exchange market is worldwide network of banks, brokers, multinationals corporations and central banks, all of who buys and sells currencies. These markets participants are linked by communications system that allow instant knowledge of factors that affect the market and of rates as they are quoted around the world. The market functions practically on 24-hour basis and is not restricted to the opening and closing hours in one particular center.

The foreign exchange market is centered around the interbank market- a large group of international commercial bank whose transactions form the major part of the daily turnover. Central banks occupy a key place in the market as they implement the foreign exchange policies of the government.
