Indicative vs. Executable rates
It is important to distinguish between indicative and execution rates:
- Indicative rates offer an indication of the prices in the market at a given point in time.
- Execution prices are based on the market liquidity at the moment of execution.
Therefore, while our indicative prices are based on the current market rates, the indicative rates may not always coincide with the executable rates. Please note that our charts are strictly for informational purposes, and show indicative SELL prices only.
During times of high volatility or low liquidity, it is common for the spreads to widen and for there to be a gap between the Ask and Bid rates due changes in supply and demand. The size of this gap is based on a range of different factors and is likely to be wider just before and after market open or market close, and during announcements.
