I have compiled some free forex historical charts for you to see how currencies have move in the past. Some of these charts go all the way back to 1978. As you can see below historical forex prices have been highly volatile.
EUR/USD (Fiber) Currency Historical Chart
The Euro was first traded in 1998. Against the Dollar the euro depreciated considerably for the first couple of years then began a long upward trend and this trend is still continuing today. The all time high currently stands at 1.5904. This high could be broken in the future. The all time low back in 2000 was 0.8227.
GBP/USD Currency Trading Chart
The historical exchange rates for GBP/USD (also known as Cable) have often moved with the euro since it’s inception. We have to go back a long long way to find the all time high, in fact all the way to 1980. The high was 2.4540. The pair has not been anywhere near there since. The all time low was in 1985 where it briefly hit 1.0463.
