What do you mean by foreign exchange

Exchange rate USD as reciprocal and wrong currency

  • For several days now, when the rate is updated, I have been receiving the rate of the US dollar as a Kerhrwert (1 euro = 0.78 USD). As a result, of course, many depot values ​​are wrong.

    In the case of Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank custody accounts, individual securities have been available for a long time, sometimes as dollars, sometimes as euros. I suspect that they are wrongly delivered by the bank, sometimes like this, sometimes like that - or the value of MG is built in.

    I would be grateful for clarification. Nobody at the banks could help me with this.

    With best regards

    In order to clarify what is going wrong, one would have to evaluate the online communication protocol. I would use it to contact support.

  • I have since found out the following:

    Unfortunately, a foreign exchange rate is not taken from today, but only from yesterday.

    In the case of a currency update, a correct value for yesterday is entered if none was available yet.

    If a depot query is made to the DB, a reciprocal value is used for
    entered yesterday if no value for yesterday is available beforehand
    was.

    Since the DB depot query was made in the online center before the foreign exchange query,
    an incorrect value has already been entered that is no longer overwritten
    can be. I could only get rid of it by deleting it manually and
    then another exchange rate query.
    Now, I only do a foreign exchange rate query, which means that a valid value is entered. Only then do I make a depot query at the DB. Then no more incorrect entries are made if a course was already entered for the delivered date.
    Maybe this information will help someone.
    A request to Buhl support was unsuccessful because they probably have little or no influence on the banks.

  • A request to Buhl support was unsuccessful because they probably have little or no influence on the banks.

    Um, what should we be able to do about it then?

  • At first I only do a foreign exchange rate query, which means that a valid value is entered. Only then do I do a depot query with the DB. Then no more incorrect entries are made if a course was already entered for the date supplied.

    Hello Bernd23,

    how does it work?

    How can I change the retrieval sequence when using the "Update accounts" function so that the exchange rates are retrieved first?

    The order cannot be influenced. But you can let the currency rate update run by itself (that's sure what he means) by just checking these boxes:

  • Hello everybody,

    I have a security that is quoted in USD. The conversion takes place with the requested exchange rate. However, there are always problems here, as the price supply is sometimes supplied as a price quotation (USD / EUR), sometimes as a quantity quotation (EUR / USD). The quantity quotation would be correct (current rates around 1.30). If the price quoted rate is used (currently rates around 0.80), the entire portfolio valuation is incorrect.

    Does anyone have any idea how to get a handle on this?

    Best wishes

    I can't understand:

    Could it be that it is an online depot and that the courses come from there?

    Like other users, I have the same problem. Came one day and has not disappeared since ...

    Look here. I don't know of any other solution. But works:

    Exchange rate USD as reciprocal and wrong currency

    By the way, this funny phenomenon only occurs with US- $, with z. B. Not GBP or DKK by the way ...

    I have an offline depot and a depot that is read out. As you can see from my screen shot, MG 2012 is throwing a lot of confusion. Just pay attention to the insane jump in April 2011 ... This cannot be seen, for example, in the price values .
    I assume that MG 2012 pulls the data in a certain order when the data is called up and does not carry out a plausibility check if the same values ​​occur twice. The first values ​​are taken and fixed.

    So first always update the exchange rates alone (!), Then the rest (also with the exchange rates, as these are now fixed)

    No matter ... the good news is that (for me) the correct values ​​for the (correct) value determination are drawn in both depots ...

    Please give a short feedback whether this work-around also works for you. Thanks.

  • Hello everybody,

    wanted to bring the topic to mind again, combined with the question of whether someone has found a solution in the meantime?
    I myself have the problem with my deposit at the Hamburger Sparkasse (HASPA). I had already opened a thread about this:
    [HASPA, Hamburger Sparkasse] Foreign exchange Exchange rates are incorrectly supplied - Incorrect values ​​in the securities account

    I had also opened a ticket at Buhl, but it was said that the rates from the bank were wrong.
    The workaround to manually update the exchange rate first does not work for me because (as already mentioned above) no rate for "today" is retrieved, but only for yesterday. Thus a wrong rate is written for "today" as soon as the depot is updated.

    greeting
