For example, if you want to know how much Euros are worth 1,000 United States Dollars, enter:

  • 1000 in the Amount Field
  • "USD" in the "From" field
  • "EUR" in the "To" field

Below the form, you will see how much Euros are worth 1,000 United States Dollars. For example, if the current exchange rate from Euros to United States Dollars is 1 USD = 0.863 EUR, the value of 1,000 USD in EUR would be 863 EUR.

If you go to a bank and exchange 1,000 United States Dollars for Euros, you might get slightly less, because the bank might give you less than €0.863 per dollar. For example, a bank might pay €0.860 per dollar. In that case, you will receive €860 and not €863.

But if you want to sell €863 to the bank, the bank may not give you $1000, because the bank will not buy each Euro at 1/0.860. If we divide 1/0.860, we get 1.1628. But the bank, in order to earn money, will pay less dollars per Euro. For example, instead of paying $1.1628 they will pay $1.1600. The difference is called "Spread".

Nominal Exchange Rate

Definition: The nominal exchange rate is the number of domestic currency units that are needed to purchase a unit of foreign currency.

The nominal exchange rate is called nominal because it takes into account only the numerical value of the currencies, it doesn't take into account the purchasing power. The Real Exchange Rate does takes the purchasing power into account.
