Foreign currency conversions

As foreign companies are added to the Calcbench database we compute standardized metrics in USD even if their original financial statements are filed in another currency. The conversion is done the following way:

For balance sheet items (instant items) we use the exchange rate closest to the end of the fiscal period filed. 

For income statement items (period items) we use an average of all available exchange rates for the fiscal period filed.
