I am looking for real-time or live exchange rate data so that I can display it on my website for free.

I looking for data that is freely available or can be used to generate the per seconds or millisecons exchange rates data, preferably for all currencies.

  • If possible yes... If not then atleast 100. – Jaffer Wilson Oct 20 '17 at 3:58
  • how is your question different from this one opendata.stackexchange.com/q/7429/1511 ? – philshem Oct 20 '17 at 21:40
  • @philshem Please read the uestion I have asked. I mean that the question you have mentioned in the above comment asks for daily exchange rates and not second exchange rates. I am looking for the per second changing exchange rates. If I needed the daily rates then it is not an issue. There are libraries that can give me that data. But not per second rate... I hope this will help. – Jaffer Wilson Oct 21 '17 at 3:57

    Like I wrote on the other question... there is no "rate" at a single time point, with the exception of end-of-day "settlement". There are "bid" and "ask" prices, which have a spread and are broker-specific. Real-time bid/ask prices come from the brokers themselves - you can get access to broker prices by registering as a trader or paying for 3rd party terminal services. From the broker screens you can also see anonymous executed trades - where the trade price will be between bid/ask and will depend on trade volume (liquidity). This is in no way open data. – philshem Oct 21 '17 at 18:33

http://www.x-rates.com is widely cited and redistributed. The frequency may not be high enough for your needs though.

Also not their terms of use: http://www.x-rates.com/terms/, particularly this clause: "...you may not use special software to parse content from this site in order to publish modified content in another web site or software application...it is our policy to block access from this server to repeat infringers of these terms"

If you need programmatic or redistribution rights, though, send an email. A lot of other sources will have exchange rates and notes that say something like "Exchange rates provided courtesy www.x-rates.com."

  • Looking for live rates.. the site you mention is not having live rates changing after second. – Jaffer Wilson Oct 21 '17 at 3:55
