Rate watch for currency exchange

When buying a house in France, it is important to get the best exchange rate. When I transfer money myself I use a ‘Rate Watch’. I tell them what rate I want and I get notified when the exchange rate I am interested in becomes available. If the rate arrives, you are under no obligation to actually trade. It is free to set up.

 See this link for more information.
