Factors affecting exchange rate

Exchange rates can be high or low due to various factors, including:

  1. Interest Rates: Higher interest rates in a country can attract foreign capital, increasing the demand for its currency and potentially strengthening its exchange rate.
  2. Inflation Rate: Lower inflation in a country generally appreciates its currency’s value because it has greater purchasing power.
  3. Economic Stability: Countries with stable economies are seen as safer investments, attracting foreign capital and strengthening their currency.
  4. Government Debt: High levels of government debt can lead to inflation and uncertainty, which can weaken a currency.
  5. Political Stability: Political events, like elections or policy changes, can impact investor confidence and, subsequently, exchange rates.
  6. Market Speculation: Traders and investors can influence exchange rates through speculation on future currency movements.
  7. Trade Balance: A country with a trade surplus (exports > imports) tends to see an appreciation of its currency due to increased demand.
  8. Market Sentiment: Public perception and sentiment about a country’s economic prospects can affect exchange rates.
  9. Central Bank Actions: Central banks can influence exchange rates by adjusting interest rates or through currency interventions in the foreign exchange market.
  10. Speculative Attacks: If there’s a perception that a currency is overvalued, it can come under speculative attack, leading to depreciation.
  11. Global Economic Conditions: Worldwide economic events and trends, such as global recessions or economic growth, can affect exchange rates.
  12. Geopolitical Events: Conflicts, trade tensions, and geopolitical instability can impact currency values.
