For spot rates, if you know the SWIFT code for the currency, then you know the currency’s RIC; just add the = sign at the end. In most cases, the spot rate for a currency is shown against the US dollar. For example:

  • GBP= shows the spot rate dollar against the British pound Sterling
  • CHF= shows the spot rate Swiss franc against US dollar.

For cross-rates, simply use the SWIFT code for each currency, then add the = sign at the end. The currency you specify first is always the base currency, and the second is the counter-currency. The RIC GBPCHF= will therefore tell you how many Swiss francs can be obtained for one pound Sterling.
