Question: Where can I find spot and forward currency rates?


To find spot and/or forward currency rates refer to the NYU Business Library economic/statistics page and select the following databases:

Global Financial Database: Use the GFDatabase filter  in the left column to narrow down to Exchange Rates, Exchange Rates-Forward and then <country> or All. Results include historical and current data.

Use Bloomberg (see access details).

  • If on the physical terminal:
  • Hit the yellow <CRNCY> key, then type TK to be taken to the main foreign exchange page where you'll see current spot and forward data available.
  • If on the virtual BB terminal:
  • Type currency and select Menu from the options that appear on screen.  This takes you to the currency module in BB where you can then select FX for the foreign exchange page. On the FX page you'll find spot and forward currency rates.
