Bid-Offer Spread and Cross Rates

The major crosses have bid-offer spreads slightly wider than the major dollar-based pairs, but they are quoted actively in the interbank market.

Spreads in the minor crosses are generally much wider. Some are not quoted directly at all, so a quote must be constructed from the bids and offers in the component currencies versus the U.S. dollar.
