CurrencyConvert

CurrencyConvert[quantity,target]

attempts to convert the specified currency quantity to the specified target currency.

CurrencyConvert[quantity,target,date]

converts to the target currency for the historical date specification.

Details

  • The target can be a canonical unit or a Quantity expression.
  • When target is a Quantity, the resulting output will have the same unit as target.
  • An internet connection is required for conversion between currency units.
  • CurrencyConvert uses exchange rate information provided by FinancialData for conversion between currency units.
  • CurrencyConvert uses InflationAdjust for historical currency conversions involving DatedUnit.
  • When no exchange rate information is available, a String representing the exchange ratio is returned instead.
  • Date specifications may include a DateObject, DateList, DateString or AbsoluteTime specification.
  • The date specification may also be a range of {start,end} or All, where results are a TimeSeries object.
