Sorry, I thought you told the API "I want the exchange rate at 14:00 time". If so, we'd all get the same answer regardless of our local timezone. It would be nice to know what the APIs timezone is so we know what "14:00" really means but that doesn't matter for beancount. If you only tell the API "I want the exchange rate now", then I think beancount should store the time in UTC. > Our current API doesn't support you providing a time, just a date. > You request for a price at a particular date. Ok, (I think) I see the problem. If the API queried by beancount only provides 1 rate per day, we could easily find out what a "day" is according to them by doing a query every hour for 24 hours. Or just pick mid-day UTC. -- Martin Michlmayr http://www.cyrius.com/ -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "Beancount" group.
