    "the most reliable"? is there such a thing? – Vitalik Nov 17 '10 at 3:18

I consider Reuters to be THE source.


XE and Oanda would be one of your safe bets. And it is in real time too. But a strict no no for using their services. They give very low exchange rates.


Here's one that appears to be real time.

If you're wanting to trade, you'll likely get something better than this with your forex trading account.


Forex rates are universal. Most of the website provide you with almost the same exchange rates with a margin of +/- 5 pips which is usually due to different spreads provided by different institutions or server delay.
