Information on the fixing of exchange rates

The exchange rates published on Danmarks Nationalbank's website are the prices in Danish kroner for 100 units of the foreign currency.

The European Central Bank (ECB) conducts a daily concertation procedure at 14:15, at which time 32 exchange rates are agreed among a number of central banks.

The reference rates are based on actual exchange rates in the interbank market and are set at the mid-price of the sell and buy side at the time of the concertation.

At the time when the concertation begins and the reference rates are to be determined, ECB will obtain the price for euro in a number of currencies, including Danish kroner, from the interbank market via correspondent banks and electronic trading platforms. ECB then determines the most accurate reference rate and during the concertation these rates with any adjustments are finally agreed among ECB and the participating central banks. Read more about the euro foreign exchange reference rate on ECB's website.

Based on the determined reference rate between euro and Danish kroner, Danmarks Nationalbank calculates a price in Danish kroner for the remaining 31 currencies.

ECB publishes the reference rates determined at the concertation at 16:00 and shortly after Danmarks Nationalbank publishes the prices in Danish kroner.

The exchange rates on Danmarks Nationalbank's website are indicative rates that are not intended to be used in any market transaction. The rates are intended for information purposes only.

SDRs (Special Drawing Rights) are calculated on the basis of a basket of currencies (US dollars, euro, pounds sterling, Japanese yen and Chinese renminbi). Latest revision of the basket took effect on 1 October 2016. This basket is published by the IMF (the International Monetary Fund). The calculation is revised regularly and the next planned revision will be in September 2021. Read more about the SDR on IMF's website.

The effective krone rate is calculated as a weighted average of the bilateral exchange rates vis-à-vis Denmark's major trading partners. The weights are calculated on the basis of trade in industrial goods in 2014. An increase in the index reflects a strengthening of the krone.​​
