When should I exchange my money?

For every currency pair that WhenToExchange has determined that it's time to exchange you will see an EXCHANGE label, recommending that now maybe a good time to exchange your money.

How does WhenToExchange determine the best time to exchange?

WhenToExchange uses a volatility system based on historical data to calculate an exchange rate price at which it is advantageous to exchange one currency for another.

When the exchange rate for a currency pair reaches the calculated price, WhenToExchange will issue an EXCHANGE recommendation.

How does the volatility system work?

Currency exchange rates are priced based on many different macroeconomic and geopolitical factors, such as: interest rates, the price of oil, news events, etc.

Typically, excluding periods of external influence, the price of an exchange rate pair would trade in a range set by the relative value of the pair's currencies. By analyzing past price data it is possible to determine a price level which lies outside of this normal trading range.

When a currency pair's exchange rate goes outside of the calculated price level due to some external influence, it is reasonable to assume that a new trading range may be established.

When the new trading range provides an opportunity for a favourable exchange WhenToExchange will issue an EXCHANGE recommendation for the currency pair.
