Currency Exchange

Currency exchange is changing one currency to another for the purpose of travel, purchase or investment. According to a study of Bank for International Settlements, daily average was more than $6 trillion trading volume. Currency Mart acts as a counter-party to an off-exchange or an over-the-counter forex transaction of cash, financial instruments, futures contracts, options on futures contracts. Currency exchange is a decentralized market and operates 24 hours per day around the globe. London, New York and Tokyo are the three major currency exchange markets and followed by cities of Hong Kong and Singapore. Decentralized market means each currency exchange broker offers its own buy in and sell out exchange rates. The rates are determined based on the demand, inventory and supply of the particular dealer and also the interbank rates at that moment. That is why exchange rates at the same moment are similar, but different broker to broker.

Currency Exchange Winnipeg - FAQ

Our rates are not as same as other Winnipeg currency exchange dealers. Each dealer set up its owner currency exchange rates based on the mid-market rates and adjusted the mark up according to its inventory level and other factors. One thing for sure is since our mark up are lower than banks, the currency exchange rates we offer are better than banks.

Google or their media posts the mid-market exchange rate, which is the average number between a buy in rate and a sell out rate. The mid-market rate is a good reference number for general public to have a brief idea what the current exchange rate right now, but the mid-market rate is not the rate that the financial market is currently trading at. In addition, Google or other media posts a rate which usually is about at least 20 minutes ago. When we trade at Currency Mart, we apply up to second live rates.

If you pay attention to currency exchange rate long enough, you will have a brief idea what is happening now and you may have a sense of prediction what will happen in the next a few months. Oppositely, as a currency exchange dealer, we have no idea what will happen during the same day or even during the same week.

As a currency exchange dealer, we need adjust our exchange rates everyday in order to stay competitive. We adjust our exchange rates based on our inventory level, current trend of the particular currency, competitor's exchange rate. The general rules are described below.

  • If our current inventory level is more than desired, we will lower our rate to speed up the sales. Oppositely, if our inventory is less than ideal, we will rise our rate to slow down the sales.
  • If the current trend for a currency is going up, we need rise our exchange rate, because the replacement cost for the particular currency will be higher. Otherwise, we will reduce our rate because we will lose value anyway if we keep the currency in stock.
  • If we need speed up sales, we need set up our rate lower than competitors'.
