Foreign Exchange Rates - H.10
Bilateral exchange rate data are updated every Monday at 4:15 p.m. Data are available up through Friday of the previous business week.
The following exchange rates are certified by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York for customs purposes as required by section 522 of the amended Tariff Act of 1930. These rates are also those required by the SEC for the integrated disclosure system for foreign private issuers. The information is based on data collected by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York from a sample of market participants.
The data are noon buying rates in New York for cable transfers payable in foreign currencies.
Note: Based on information we received from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, revisions were applied in October 2004 to the exchange rate of the dollar against both the Hong Kong Dollar and the Chinese Yuan for several days between 1999 and 2003. Please refer to the following link for a list of these days and for the size of the revisions: http://www.newyorkfed.org/markets/fxrates/revisions.html .
