Cross Rate

The cross rate is the exchange rate of two currencies both of which are not the legal tender of the country which the quote is given in. For example, the AUD/JPY quote in the British Financial Times newspaper will be regarded as a cross rate in this context. Often times, the cross rate is also used to refer to quotes which do not include the USD.
