Options for Currency Exchange
Currency exchange works two ways. If you are a buyer or seller of currency then you can either go to open market for currency exchange where you would find many money exchangers. You can also go to any national bank. Sometimes they give you amazing deals on money exchange but most of the time but they would charge you tad bit more.
The banks have a foreign exchange market of their own known as interbank foreign exchange market. The banks worldwide are in constant communication with each other either directly or via electronic platform mainly electronic broking services or Reuters. Money transactions are made on daily basis. The prices of most valued currencies around the world keep on fluctuating in relation to other currencies. Through interbank, bankers usually trade money on a wholesale rate. Mostly they keep their eyes on high rated currencies. Purchase between banks is comparatively at nominal prices, so banks tend to keep foreign currency in bulk and sell it to investors and people at higher rates hence making more money. A number of countries have rules and regulations imposed on interbank trade but in most of the countries, the interbank market is usually decentralized and devoid of rules and regulations.
Interbank Rate Difference
Worldwide Bank’s motive is to deliver the best services to its clients and put up with the load of withdrawals and payments done on the part of clients. In doing so, it inflicts an interest on any money exchanged via banks. This is the reason that interbank exchange rates are different from open market foreign exchange rates. The travelers around the world don’t always opt for bank for money exchange because of comparatively high price issue. Wealthy investors buy foreign currency from banks and then save it in that banks’ account so that by the time they withdraw it, they would get double or even triple the amount i.e. the interest added to the amount.
