About the Release RSS DDP

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".

The H.10 weekly release contains daily rates of exchange of major currencies against the U.S. dollar. The data are noon buying rates in New York for cable transfers payable in the listed currencies. The rates have been certified by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York for customs purposes as required by section 522 of the amended Tariff Act of 1930.

Release Dates provides an archive of historical H.10 releases. The H.10 release contains daily bilateral exchange rates and nominal dollar indexes from the previous week. Be advised that past releases are not revised and may not reflect subsequent revisions to the data.

Country Data lists historical bilateral exchange rates. These data are current up through the latest H.10 release and are updated weekly on Mondays at 4:15 p.m.

Nominal/Real Indexes are for U.S. dollar indexes: (1) Advanced Foreign Economies (AFE) index, (2) the broad dollar index, and (3) Emerging Market Economies (EME) index. Nominal dollar indexes are available in both daily and monthly frequencies. Real dollar indexes are available only at a monthly frequency.

Currency Weights displays the trade weights that are used in constructing the Major, Broad and OITP dollar indexes.

G.5 provides the monthly release and contains monthly averages of bilateral exchange rates and nominal dollar indexes.

G.5A provides the annual release and contains annual averages of bilateral exchange rates and nominal dollar indexes.
