What is an interbank rate?

Interbank rates are the wholesale rates at which banks (and only banks) buy and sell currency between each other. Interbank provides the best indication on how a currency pair is performing.

People and businesses – whoever they exchange with – will have their money exchanged at a ‘commercial’ exchange rate.

Seeing our exchange rate is easy. Just register (it takes two minutes) and log in to find out.

Is the euro on track for parity with the US dollar?

The ECB's tricky balancing act has been made harder by Goldman Sachs, which thinks that the euro could achieve dollar parity within months.
