Looking for cases, business plans, stock price, foreign exchange rates, mergers & acquisitions, trade data, country information, or statistical websites?

Current Information

Nominal vs. Real

Virtually all of the sources here present nominal exchange rates, meaning they only the rate at which currencies exchange, ie 1$ = .75£. Real exchange rates are adjusted for inflation and other differences in prices. More information can be found in this article from the International Monetary Fund (121k PDF)

The IMF is the only online source available at the American University for time series data on real exchange rates.
