What is a Currency Cross Pair?

 

Back in the ancient days, if someone wanted to change currencies, they would first have to convert their currencies into U.S. dollars, and only then could they convert their dollars into the currency they desired.

 

Currency Crosses Caveman
For example, if a person wanted to change their U.K. sterling into Japanese yen, they would first have to convert their sterling into U.S. dollars, and then convert these dollars into yen.

 

With the invention of currency crosses, individuals can now bypass the process of converting their currencies into US dollars and simply convert it directly into their desired currency. Some examples of crosses include: GBP/JPY, EUR/JPY, EUR/CHF, and EUR/GBP.

Calculating Currency Cross Rates

Currency Cross Calculator

Warning: This part is a little boring…unless you like numbers. It’s not difficult but it can be kind of dry. The good news is that this section really isn’t necessary anymore since most broker platforms already calculate cross rates for you.

However, if you are the type that likes to know how everything works, then this section is for you! And besides, it’s always good to know how things work right? In this section, we will show you how to calculate the bid (buying price) and ask (selling price) of a currency cross.

Let’s say we want to find the bid/ask price for GBP/JPY. The first thing we would do is look at the bid/ask price for both GBP/USD and USD/JPY.

Why these 2 pairs?

Because both of them have the U.S. dollar as their common denominator.

These 2 pairs are called the “legs” of GBP/JPY because they are the U.S. dollar pairs associated with it.

Now let’s say we find the following bid/ask prices:

GBP/USD: 1.5630 (bid) / 1.5635 (ask)

USD/JPY: 89.38 (bid) / 89.43 (ask)

To calculate the bid price for GBP/JPY, you simply multiply the bid prices for GBP/USD and USD/JPY.

If you got 139.70, good job! Your calculator is working properly, yipee!

To get the ask price for GBP/JPY, just multiply the ask prices for GBP/USD and USD/JPY and we get 139.82. Easy as pie!

什么是货币的交叉配对?

      “货币的交叉配对”,也称为“交叉货币对”,或干脆简称为“交叉盘”。它是指一组,不涉及美元的货币对。

       回到远古的时代,如果有人想要兑换货币,他们首先得要将本国的货币兑换成美元,然后他们才能把手上的美元,转换成他们想要的货币。

   

       举个例子,如果一个人想把手中的英镑兑换成日元,他们首先要做的是把英镑兑换成美元,然后才将这些美元兑换成日元。

       随着货币交叉盘的发明,个人现在可以绕过,把本国货币兑换成美元这个复杂的过程,只需简单直接就可以兑换成自己所需的货币。一些交叉盘的例子:英镑/日元,欧元/日元,欧元/瑞郎,和欧元/英镑等。

交叉汇率的计算
          警告:这段内容会有点无聊 …… 除非你是喜欢数字的。但这段内容并不困难,只是它很枯燥。好消息是,这部分其实并不是非常重要,因为大多数经纪商的交易平台,已经为您计算好交叉的汇率了。

       但是,如果你是那种喜欢清楚一切如何运作的人,那么这部分是为你准备的!而且,清楚知道事情是如何运作的,总是有益的,对吧?在本节课中,我们将展示给你,如何计算在一个交叉货币对的投标价(买进价),和询问价(卖出价)。

       假设我们要查找英镑/日元的买进/卖出的价格,首先我们会做的是,查看英镑/美元和美元/日元,两种货币的买进/卖出价格。

       为什么是这2种货币对?

       因为它们两对都有一个共同的货币:美元。

       这两对货币也被称为英镑/日元的“腿”,因为是由它们通过美元而组成英镑/日元的。

       现在我们来看看下面的买进/卖出价:

       英镑/美元:1.5630(买进价)/ 1.5635(卖出价)

       美元/日元:89.38 (买进价)/ 89.43(卖出价)

       为了计算出英镑/日元的买进价,你只需要直接的把英镑/美元,和美元/日元的买进价相乘就可以了。

       如果你得到139.70,做得很好!您的计算器操作正常,耶!

       要得到英镑/日元的卖出价,同样只需要把英镑/美元,和美元/日元的卖出价格相乘,我们就得到139.82。小菜一碟!
