Calculation and Extrapolation of Deliverable Foreign Exchange Spreads

The currency tools and live display tables depicted on Pound Sterling Live are purely illustrative in nature  and show the possible deliverable foreign exchange made available to retail consumers.

Calculation of Spreads

The retail rate is derived after subtracting the spread - this is the difference between the spot market rate and the retail rate delivered by currency providers.

The spread is discretionary and therefore not fixed hence why the rates shown are illustrative in nature.

The final deliverable rate has to be agreed with your broker or bank.
