Foreign Exchange Rates - H.10
Effective on February 4, 2019, the Federal Reserve Board staff has made major changes to the methodology used to construct the trade-weighted dollar indexes in the H.10, G.5, and G.5A releases. These changes affect the calculation of index weights and country composition. The new dollar indexes go back to (and are indexed to) January 2006. For more information, see "Revisions to the Federal Reserve Dollar Indexes" and "Technical Q&As".
On Mondays at 4:15 p.m. the Federal Reserve Board releases daily bilateral exchange rates and U.S. dollar indexes for the previous business week. If Monday falls on a Federal Holiday, the data will be released on the following business day.
1: Effective on February 4, 2018, the Federal Reserve Board has changed the methodology used to construct the trade-weighted dollar indexes in the H.10, G.5, and G.5A releases. These changes, designed to improve the alignment of the currency weights with current U.S. trade patterns, include revisions to the calculation of the weighting scheme and country composition. In addition, the former Major index has been renamed as the Advanced Foreign Economies (AFE) index, and the Other Important Trading Partners (OITP) index has been renamed as the Emerging Market Economies (EME) index. The Federal Reserve Board will continue to release the dollar indexes based solely on trade in goods until December 31, 2019. These old indexes are referred to as "Broad – goods only", "Major – goods only", and "OITP – goods only". For more information on the new methodology, see "Revisions to the Federal Reserve Dollar Indexes" and "Technical Q&As".Return to text
2: Effective January 1, 2009, the Federal Reserve Board is discontinuing publication of the H.10 Daily Update, which provides U.S. dollar exchange rates against other currencies certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and summary measures of the foreign exchange value of the dollar. The Federal Reserve Bank of New York also has issued notification that it will discontinue publication of these foreign exchange rates on its web site.
The Federal Reserve Board will still make the certified exchange rates available. Effective January 5, 2009, the Board will publish the daily exchange rate data in a weekly version of the H.10 release, reinstituting the weekly publication, which had been discontinued in May 2006. The webpage that links to historical data from the H.10 release will also be updated once per week to pick up the daily data from the previous week.Return to text
