Exchange rates

As of 1 July 2016, Banco de Portugal will update the reference rates, the gold bullion prices and the Special Drawing Rights rates on the institutional website and the BPstat statistical portal daily after 16:00.

This change stems from the fact that the European Central Bank has decided to change the time of publication of euro reference exchange rates, from 13:30 to 15:00 (Portuguese time).
