The API Currency Service is available to clients solely to reconcile amounts paid or received by them resulting from their transactions through the AppNexus Platform and may not be used by clients for any other purpose.
This is a read-only service that shows you the list of currencies that you can set a line-item or insertion-order to use. For more details about when exchange rates are pulled and when they go into effect see Currency Support (customer login required).

View a currency's exchange rate for a day in the past:
We don't get updated exchange rates every day (e.g. not on weekends). If you ask for a rate on a specific day and
rate_per_usd is null, you should use the next oldest exchange rate for your calculations. For example, 2012-03-03 and 2012-03-04 are weekend days so we do not have exchange rates for those days. If you make a call asking for the exchange rate on 2012-03-04, we will return null. Instead, you should use the rate from 2012-03-02 for calculations on 2012-03-03 and 2012-03-04.

If true, the currency is exposed.
Note: To show conversion rates, pass show_rate=true in the URL. You can also retrieve a past day's rate by passing in ymd=YYYYMMDD via the URL.
* When querying the currency API (eg:
rate_per_usd), the service is currently returning all the correct values, with the exception for
last_modified. The actual rates are accurate, and the API is returning updated exchange rates.
Currently, use the
as_of column instead of
last_modified to know the version of the exchange rate being returned.
