The official exchange rates for the US Dollar (USD) are published by the Federal Reserve System (FED), the central banking system of the United States of America (USA). Updated on every Monday, the report includes 23 currencies for the working days of the past week from the current date, therefore effectively leaving exchange rates outdated for as long as a week, which is far from our aim to provide daily exchange rates.
Despite this important delay on the FED publication, and due to its important role in the world’s economy, the FED plugin will be soon included with foxer currency calculator on upcoming releases, and so provide our users with direct access to the official US exchange rates.
