Currency converter

A currency converter or calculator can be used to calculate exchange rates for currencies. The currency tool is especially designed software to help traders, businesses and individuals convert one currency into another to find its equivalent value. Currency converters can be found online on various websites or can be downloaded as a mobile app.  Currency converters are based on current market exchange rates.

If you want to use a currency converter and find the value of your funds when you convert them from one currency to another, you first enter an amount of money, then choose the currency whose value you want to check and finally select the currency into which you want to convert your funds. The converter will then display the converted amount.  


Currency converters are based on real, live world market exchange rates, this is why the final displayed amount will always change in line with the markets and the fluctuating exchange rates. Currency converters provide information on the current exchange rates by connecting to a database of real-time currency exchange rates. All currency converters update at different times and intervals and this means that different currency converters will display different exchange rates.

The currency conversion software calculates the exchange rates as decimal point numbers with 4 and some times 5 decimals after the comma to provide precision.

Why are currency converters useful?

Currency converters are independent and show currency values that are not biased towards trading, in order to guide a trader to buy or sell. This is why they are useful for businesses when estimating the value of goods or services, for accounting and invoicing and preparing financial reports.

Many businesses use a currency converter in order to determine the selling and buying profits of various products. They can easily identify whether they make or lose money.

Currency converters are also easy to use. An online currency converter is a simple, handy, fast, and accurate tool. This means that traders can use this accurate tool in any situation when trading with different currencies.

Accessing the right Information at the most opportune time in forex is vital and can determine your profit or loss. Forex traders use online currency converters which are traditionally known for how reliable and precise they are.   Exchange rates are not stable and fixed but fluctuating constantly. This happens to all currencies irrespective of whether they are currencies from strong or weak economies.

Most online money converters have information from multiple national currencies. While many online currency converters are free, there are some paid versions with several other features. There are converters that you can use from the web browser in your computer or others that need to be downloaded. The latter are usually the ones you have to pay for on a monthly or yearly basis.
