View Full Version : How To Get Latest Currency Exchange Rates

11-21-2005, 10:44 AM

Can anyone let me know if I can use a web service somewhere on the internet to import currency exchange rates for free? I have looked on xe.com and the service costs $500 a month. It would be a nice feature but I can justify $500 a month to do it!

I need to show product prices in GBP EURO and USD.

My website is written is ASP so If anyone has any advice, URLs or sample code I would be very appreciative!

Thanks in advance,

Yahoo have a lto of financial information available - possibly not on a for profit basis though - You should be able to grab their currency graphs and current price aka http://finance.yahoo.com/currency?u

This url shows a graph of the london ftse 100, for example

Try searching, I am sure there is information on getting to the raw data as well
