Historical exchange rates FAQ's
This FAQ contains the following information: My company needs multiple seats to access the historical exchange rates application. Do you offer an affordable solution for this?

Yes, we do. Please contact us at fxdata@oanda.com with the following information:
  • • How you will be using the historical currency data
  • • The number of accounts/seats you need for your company
Is it possible to select and compare more than five quote currencies at the same time?

Yes. To do so, please click on the + button next to the last quote currency. You can compare up to 10 quoted currencies simultaneously. If you need more than 10, the OANDA Exchange Rates API subscription plan may be suitable for you. Please find detailed information on how to automate your currency data retrieval process here.

Why I cannot download historical exchange rates?

Most likely you have not signed up for the premium plan. By becoming an OANDA premium user, you have unlimited access to our historical currency data (dated back to 1990) and its download. You may sign up for a free 30-day trial.

If you are already an OANDA customer and cannot download the data of your choice, you may not be signed in to your account. Please click on the "
Sign In" button located in the top right corner of the window.

Why can I only view historical data dated back to one year?

If you are already an OANDA historical exchange rates customer and can’t access data older than one year, you may not be signed in to your account. Please click on the "Sign-In" button located at the top right corner of your browser window.

Can I use the same login and password for my exchange rates API subscription to sign in on the historical exchange rates webpage?

If you have forgotten your password, you can reset it by clicking on the "Forgot Password" on the Sign-In page.
