SWIFT does not actually move money; their network transmits messages between banks that allow the banks to make transfers. Rather than giving someone your bank account number, then, you use a SWIFT account number and SWIFT does the rest. They’re also not a corporation, but a cooperative owned by the banks who use the network. Ba...

How are international exchange rates set?

Foreign exchange, or Forex, is the conversion of one country's currency into that of another. In a free economy, a country's currency is valued according to factors of supply and demand. In other words, a currency's value can be pegged to another country's currency, such as the U.S. dollar, or even to a basket of currencies. A country's currency value also may be fixed by the country's government. However, most countries float their currencies freely against those of other countries, which keeps them in constant fluctuation. The value of any particular currency is determined by market forces based on trade, investment, tourism, and geo-political risk. Every time a tourist visits a country, for example, he or she must pay for goods and services using the currency of the host country...
