Tracking Foreign Exchange Market (Forex) Prices

StockMarketEye can track foreign exchange (forex) prices using the currency pair symbols from Yahoo! Finance. You can include currency pairs in your portfolios or watchlists.

Currency pair symbols are not available via the built-in symbol search. You can, however, find the Yahoo! Finance currency pair symbols directly on the Yahoo! Finance Currencies Center.

Yahoo! Finance Currencies Center

Click on one of the currency pairs to go to the currency pair’s Yahoo! Finance web page. In this page you’ll find the currency symbol that you can use in StockMarketEye.

Yahoo! Finance Currency Page

Simply copy-paste the currency pair symbol from the Yahoo! Finance web page into the “Watchlist Symbol Details” window or the portfolio “Buy or short-sell a stock” window.

Adding Forex to Watchlist in StockMarketEye

If your currency pair is not one of the standard currency pairs displayed on the Currencies Center main page, you can still get price information for your currency pair by building and entering the currency pair by yourself.

Currency pair symbols are of this form: “<currency #1><currency #2>=X”. For example:

  • EURUSD=X – Euro to US Dollar
  • USDCHF=X – US Dollar to Swiss Franc
  • CHFJPY=X – Swiss Franc to Japanese Yen
  • SGDEUR=X – Singapore Dollar to Euro
  • GBPAUD=X – British Pound to Australian Dollar
