    Default Currency rates (added every week or two).

    I like to keep track of the currency exchange rates, and where they are going... and it gives a rough idea of what something from Overseas will cost.

    Every week or two I'll post up the main five currencies, from the xe.com website, which gives updated rates every 60 seconds.

    As noted in another thread recently, the figures quoted by xe.com (and other sources) are just the starting rate. The actual rate your bank or online purchase will calculate will be adjusted by several percent for their own commission/profit for the transaction. So if you are buying something in US$, the rate will be a few US cents less than the figure quoted by xe.com, but if you are buying back AU$ from US$, the rate will be a few US cents more.

    As of 7th May, according to xe.com, these are the current rates for AU$1

    - US$ - 0.7528
    - GB£ - 0.4979
    - JP¥ - 75.18
    - EU€ - 0.5666
    - NZ$ - 1.28

    We had better than expected jobs figures, and the recent surges in commodities has helped.
