FOREX (foreign exchange) Data

Forex time-series data is vital for investors and traders interested in rand-hedge stocks and shares dependent on commodity prices. A rising gold price, for example, is of little use to South African gold mines if it is offset by rand weakness.

The default Magic dataset provides a comprehensive array of key foreign exchange rates and cross-rates covering the major world economies.

History for most forex rates is provided in both directions (eg, Rand-Dollar and Dollar-Rand).

The dataset includes primary rates and a good selection of cross-rates for:

  • The US Dollar
  • British Sterling
  • The Euro
  • Japanese Yen
  • Australian Dollar
  • Selected African countries
