How do Currency Exchange Rates Work?

Currency exchange rates change daily as supply and demand fluctuates. They’re influenced by many things, including central bank policies, economic conditions and political risks. When central banks decide to change interest rates, investors will re-evaluate the potential return on investments. This will likely cause investors to re-evaluate the monetary value of each currency. When investors believe that one currency is more likely to provide a return, they will buy that currency with their existing holdings in hopes of profiting from the investment. This causes demand for that currency to increase, and its value will rise. When investors lose confidence in a specific currency, they will sell off their holdings in hopes of cashing in on a more favourable investment. This causes demand for that currency to decrease, and its value will drop.

Central Bank Policies and Exchange Rates

Central banks set the interest rates for their respective countries. Higher interest rates will attract investors, which will cause demand for the country’s currency to rise. This, in turn, will cause the exchange rates to rise, making the currency more expensive. Higher interest rates will cause investors to look for higher returns. They will buy up a country’s currency in hopes of profiting from the investment. As demand for a country’s currency increases, its value will rise. On the other hand, if interest rates are low, investors will be less likely to invest in the country. They will instead seek to invest in higher-yielding currencies. This will cause demand for a country’s currency to decrease, causing its value to fall.

Economic Factors that Affect Currency Exchange Rates

GDP growth forecasts - If a country is expected to experience strong economic growth, its currency will be more valuable. This will happen as investors flock to buy the country’s stocks and bonds. This increase in demand for the currency will cause the exchange rate to rise. Since the country is expected to experience higher demand for its goods and services, the currency will be more attractive to travellers and investors. This will cause the value of the currency to rise. Inflation rates - Generally, a higher inflation rate will cause a country’s currency to depreciate. Investors look to invest in countries where goods and services are less expensive, so as inflation rises, investors will move their money to invest in lower-cost economies. This decrease in demand for the country’s currency will cause the exchange rate to fall.

Trade Policies That Affect Currency Exchange Rates

If a country adopts policies that restrict trade, investors will be less likely to invest in that country. This will cause demand for the country’s currency to decrease, causing its value to fall. Investors will look to countries with trade policies that favour imports and exports. As demand for a country’s currency decreases, its value will fall. If a country adopts policies that favour imports, investors will be less likely to invest in that country. This will cause demand for the country’s currency to decrease, causing its value to fall. Investors will look to countries with trade policies that favour imports and exports. As demand for a country’s currency decreases, its value will fall.

Political Risk and Currency Exchange Rates

If a country is experiencing political turmoil or if there is uncertainty in its political environment, investors will be less likely to invest in that country. This will cause demand for the country’s currency to decrease, causing the exchange rate to fall. Investors will look to countries with political stability. Investors will be more likely to invest in these countries, causing demand for the currency to increase, causing its value to rise.

Summing up

Currency exchange rates are volatile and they fluctuate daily. They also differ between various currencies due to differences in interest rates, economies, trade policies and political risk. Understanding these factors can help you make informed decisions about when to buy or sell a specific currency.
