Frequently asked questions

add

How are OANDA's rates calculated?

The exchange rates provided by us are averages from the global foreign exchange market gathered from frequently updated sources, including our fxTrade currency trading platform, leading market data vendors and contributing financial institutions. Most of our rates are based on tens of thousands of different price points, collected every tick, every second, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our state-of-the-art technology then validates rates and detects/filters anomalies using algorithms, and calculates the average of all collected data over a 24-hour period to make it available to our customers.

add

Why are OANDA's rates different from other sources?

Our FX rates are derived from constantly updating sources, including our fxTrade currency trading platform, leading market data vendors, and contributing financial institutions. FX is an over-the-counter (OTC) market, which means that OTC contracts are not executed and cleared on a central exchange as you find for stocks, futures and other listed instruments. This means that the source and quality of FX rates can vary widely between data providers. Our rates might differ from other data providers, as they may make use of a single source or non-tradable rates. We offer actually traded foreign exchange prices to our clients and are recognised globally as the standard for accurate FX data.

add

At what time do you publish the latest rates?

The exchange rate data is updated at 00:00 UTC. However, we also offer 96 fixings points daily, allowing you to customise your reporting period. For more information on how this works, please contact us.
