Trade Weights as of February 5, 2019

Broad Index of the Foreign Exchange Value of the Dollar

Weights for the Advanced Foreign Economies (AFE) and the Emerging Market Economies (EME) indexes can be derived from the weights, shown below, for the broad index of the foreign exchange value of the dollar. The method used to construct the weights is described in "Revisions to the Federal Reserve Dollar Indexes". The broad index and the other exchange rate indexes calculated by staff of the Federal Reserve Board are presented on the Nominal/Real Indexes page.

Bilateral dollar exchange rates are available from the Board's H.10 (weekly) and G.5 (monthly) statistical releases. The previous currency weights were in use from November 6, 2017 to February 3, 2019.

Note: The Federal Reserve no longer computes weights for individual countries within the euro area after January 1, 1999, the date of the formation of the euro currency union.

In the table, an asterisk at the beginning of a row indicates that the currency of that country or region is included in the Advanced Foreign Economies (AFE) index. The absence of an asterisk indicates a country with a currency in the Emerging Market Economies (EME) index.
