Default look of the Currency rates list:
As it clear from title, this lust contains currency rates, which allow to recalculate amounts between different currencies. All rates are based in the base currency, specified in Settings. For example, if you use USD as base currency, than currency rate for EUR should allow to get amount in EUR by multiplying amount in EUR and currency rate.
For example, 100 EUR corresponds to 113.65 USD on 06-jun-2016. This means that currency rate should be 1.1365. So, 100 x 1.1365 = 113.65.
