Bangko Sentral Exchange Rate – Pilipinas money converter for Philippines banks (bsp.gov.ph)

Bangko Sentral ng PilipinasI was opted in to search for more information about the peso-dollar exchange rate today, August 10, 2012 to see if there is any fluctuation in the value of peso compared to dollar currency. This is to see if the bagyong Habagat which devastated a large part of Luzon including Metro Manila if it gave any reason for the value of peso to devaluate. I’ll be receiving money from the United States so I want to see if my cash will turn out to have a bigger exchange rate today. My first destination when it comes to currency converter? Central Bank of the Philippines website.
