XE.com is a company that provides online foreign exchange tools and services. Their prices are updated every minute which can cause a delay. Additionally, they only show the mid price which can differ due to spreads. Capital.com is a CFD broker that has live prices and competitive spreads that are available to view at all times.
When you check prices from different sources, it is important to do the following:
- compare the same markets in the same currency and in the same market type (spot/futures/options etc). Keep in mind that Capital.com mainly offers instruments that have spot prices;
- be aware of the differences in bid/ask and mid prices. Our handy guides have the essential details about mid prices and bid/ask;
- check any possible delay on third-party prices (unlike Capital.com, most free websites do not have fully live prices).
