FOREIGN EXCHANGE

RATES

This is the determination rate within the Foreign exchange market for selling or buying one currency against the other. Currencies are the buying and selling powers of every country and their value is not always equal, they differ from country to country.  We can say almost every countries currency may differ when compared to one another due to the country’s economic strength, this may always mean that the poor is the economy of one country then the weaker will its currency be in the market.

Example:

  • The exchange rate of USD and ZAR on 03 August 2017 was 13.34
  • The exchange rate of USD and EUR on 03 August 2017 was 0.84
  • This exchange rate were checked using the currency converter

This simple means that 1 USD can be sold for about 13.34 ZAR and also 1 USD can be sold for 0.84 EUR. This formula is always like this 1 USD is equal to 1 USD or 1 Euro equal to 1 Euro, that is why you can never compare one countries currency only, there should be another to compare, remember with this we are not just comparing currencies as a form of payments but currencies as a form of countries economic strength. This is always the rate that will cost you to buy or sell a specific currency.
