BankersAlgo API exchange rates Sources

BankersAlgo obtains its financial data from a variety of sources (including the EU Central Bank and Financial services for the cryptocurrencies 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. API result 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

An other example, let's convert US Dollars to Yuan. API result 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.
