    What is a Currency Exchange Rate Calculator?

    The foreign exchange market is a global market where customers can trade a range of currencies for a wide variety of purposes. Different regions and countries use different currencies as a means of transacting for goods and services. The rates at which these currencies are exchanged depends on a wide variety of economic and political factors. These rates change on a daily basis, meaning that the rate you get today may not be the rate you get tomorrow.

    To assist users looking to convert one currency to another, we have developed the Hardbacon Currency Exchange Rate Calculator that can be used to:

    • Determine the particular rate at which two currencies can be exchanged
    • Explore a wide range of currency conversion rates
    • Make decisions based on existing rates
    • Convert a specific amount into another foreign currency

    How to use the Hardbacon Currency Exchange Rate Calculator

    The Hardbacon Currency Exchange Rate Calculator is designed to be highly user-friendly. With just a few steps, you should be able to see both the going exchange rate and the amount that you can expect to receive in exchange for your desired currency. There are only three inputs required for the calculator to work its magic:

    • Home currency: This is the currency that you currently own and want to convert into another currency.
    • Amount: This number represents the amount you want to have converted to another currency.
    • Foreign currency: The foreign currency is the currency that you are looking to have your home currency converted into.

    Understanding the results of the Currency Exchange Rate Calculator

    Once you have entered the three inputs above, you simply need to scroll down to see the results of your currency conversion. There are two key results that you can see here:

    • Total amount: Based on the inputs you have entered, you can see how much of the foreign currency you can expect to receive for the level of home currency that you have input. For example, if you entered CAD 100 as your home currency and wanted to convert that to USD, you should see approximately USD 75 to USD 79 or so (depending on the day).
    • Exchange Rate: To see the exact exchange rate, all you need to do is simply enter ‘1’ into the middle field. For example, CAD 1 converted to USD would be approximately USD 0.75 to USD 0.79.
