Currency Table Setup

The Currency Table Setup window is a currency conversion table used to calculate the P&L data in the Position pane of the Fill window. Viewing of the Currency Table data requires no additional logins. However, currency table setup requires a TT Administrator login.

Note: The Currency Table must be published if you are using Guardian 7.8 (or earlier) and your credit limits are not in USD. Beginning with Guardian 7.17, currency rates are published in TT User Setup.

To set up and edit the Currency Table:

  1. After completing a TT Admin Login, from the Admin menu, click Currency Table Setup.
  2. Select a primary currency from the list.

    The United States dollar (USD) has been selected as the primary currency. All other currencies are valued in relation to the manually-entered USD exchange rates. The corresponding side of the exchange rate will be automatically calculated. If you entered the rates in USD, the rate to the dollar will automatically be calculated. The reverse also holds true.

  3. If you have the primary currency to foreign currency exchange rate, enter it in your primary currency’s column. For example, if the selected primary currency is USD and the current EUR/USD rate is 0.7403, enter 0.7403 under the USD column, in the EUR row.

    Or

    If you have the foreign currency to primary currency exchange rate, enter it in your primary currency’s row. For example, if the selected primary currency is USD and the current USD/EUR rate is 1.3508, enter 1.3508 in the USD row, under the EUR column.

  4. Click Publish to save your changes.

    Guardian allows you to conveniently add and delete currencies at any time.

    To add a currency to the table:

  5. From the upper left corner of the Currency Table Setup window, click Add.

    The Add Currency dialog box appears:

  6. In the Currency field of the Add Currency dialog box, enter the 3-letter designation for your desired currency and click OK.
  7. On the Currency Table Setup window highlight the cell where the row for your newly added currency and the column for the designated primary currency meet.
  8. Enter the monetary value of your new currency in relation to the primary currency in that cell.

    Note: The exchange rate for any currency you add is not hard coded. As such, you will need to know the exchange rate when adding a new currency.

  9. Click Publish to save your changes.

To delete a currency from the table:

  1. On the Currency Table Setup window, click the row associated with the currency you wish to delete.

    This highlights the row.
