Foreign Currency Market


The Foreign Currency Market (MONEX) was launched for authorized and member entities in November 2006.


MONEX is a service whereby participating entities trade and liquidate with BCCR and among themselves their foreign currency buying and selling operations, pursuant to the provisions in the Regulations for Cash Exchange Operations.  


Information can also be sent to BCCR, pursuant to the Regulations for Cash Exchange Operations. Thus, information is available on the behavior of trading with the public, with entities outside of MONEX, as well as exchange rates used at the retail market.
