Factors affecting exchange rate
Exchange rates can be high or low due to various factors, including:
- Interest Rates: Higher interest rates in a country can attract foreign capital, increasing the demand for its currency and potentially strengthening its exchange rate.
- Inflation Rate: Lower inflation in a country generally appreciates its currency’s value because it has greater purchasing power.
- Economic Stability: Countries with stable economies are seen as safer investments, attracting foreign capital and strengthening their currency.
- Government Debt: High levels of government debt can lead to inflation and uncertainty, which can weaken a currency.
- Political Stability: Political events, like elections or policy changes, can impact investor confidence and, subsequently, exchange rates.
- Market Speculation: Traders and investors can influence exchange rates through speculation on future currency movements.
- Trade Balance: A country with a trade surplus (exports > imports) tends to see an appreciation of its currency due to increased demand.
- Market Sentiment: Public perception and sentiment about a country’s economic prospects can affect exchange rates.
- Central Bank Actions: Central banks can influence exchange rates by adjusting interest rates or through currency interventions in the foreign exchange market.
- Speculative Attacks: If there’s a perception that a currency is overvalued, it can come under speculative attack, leading to depreciation.
