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.

US stock markets have closed an August to forget, recording their worst month in three years – and this is despite the US dollar consistently making gains against its major counterparts.
