1 Step 1

What exactly is currency?

Currency is any generally accepted medium of exchange. Currencies are often named as such based on the country in which they circulate. The exchange rate refers to the value of one currency in terms of another. This site provides conversion and historical data for EUR-USD and EURO to US Dollar.


How can you manually convert euros to dollars?

To manually convert euros to dollars, you need to know what the exchange rate is between the USD and EUR. The foreign exchange markets are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so convert rates can change at any time. The easiest and most up-to-date way of doing this is getting information from an online currency converter.


What happens if the euro's dollar value rises?

•When the value of a currency increases over time, when it goes up in value in relation to other currencies, it is known as appreciation. The US dollar is called a "reserve currency," which means that many countries around the world hold dollars in reserve, and because of that practice, the US dollar is used to measure the value of other currencies.
•When the value of the euro rises against the dollar, that means that goods and services denominated in euros are getting more expensive for people using dollars. For products like cars or computers or decorations made overseas, this is a disadvantage. But if a business displays its prices in euros and records its sales in dollars (most countries use their own currency to record sales), then when its revenues are converted into dollars, they will go up.
  • Who gains from a depreciation of the currency?

    A depreciation of the currency is generally seen as a positive sign for export-oriented industries, which should benefit from their competitive edge. Therefore, on average, the export-oriented industries will gain from a currency depreciation.
  • What are the factors that influence the dollar's and euro's exchange rates?

    Economists have identified more than a hundred factors that could potentially affect the exchange rate between the U.S. dollar and other currencies. In economic lingo, any factor that may influence the demand for U.S. dollars, or the supply of U.S. dollars, is called a "currency crosser," and factors like these are typically grouped into three categories: fundamental, technical, and market-psychological factors.
