Key Factors that Affect Foreign Exchange Rates

Here are some of the key factors that affect foreign exchange rates in the country

Inflation Rates

Currency exchange rates fluctuate due to changes in market inflation. A country’s currency will appreciate if its inflation rate is lower than that of another.

When inflation is low, prices for goods and services rise at a slower rate.

A country with consistently lower inflation has a rising currency value, whereas a country with higher inflation has a depreciating currency, which is usually accompanied by higher interest rates.

Interest Rates

Interest rate changes have an impact on currency value and the dollar exchange rate. Forex rates, interest rates, and inflation rates are all linked.

Interest rate increases cause a country’s currency to appreciate because higher interest rates provide higher rates to lenders, attracting more foreign capital and causing exchange rates to rise.

Country’s Current Account/Balance of Payments

The current account of a country reflects the balance of trade and earnings from foreign investment. It is made up of a variety of transactions such as exports, imports, debt, and so on.

A current account deficit caused by spending more of its currency on importing goods than it earns from exports causes depreciation.

The exchange rate of its domestic currency fluctuates due to the balance of payments.

Government Debt

Government Debt

Government debt is the public debt or national debt that is owed by the central government

A government-debt-ridden country is less likely to attract foreign capital, resulting in inflation.

If the market predicts that a country’s government debt will rise, foreign investors will sell their bonds on the open market.

As a result, the value of the currency’s exchange rate will fall.

Terms of Trade

The terms of trade, which are related to current accounts and the balance of payments, are the ratio of export prices to import prices.

If a country’s export prices rise faster than its import prices, its trade terms improve. This leads to increased revenue, which leads to increased demand for the country’s currency and an increase in its value.

The exchange rate rises as a result of this.

Political Stability & Performance

Currency strength can be affected by a country’s political situation and economic performance.

A country with fewer political problems is more appealing to foreign investors.

An increase in foreign capital leads to an increase in the value of the country’s domestic currency. A country with sound financial and trade policies does not allow for currency value uncertainty.

However, in a country prone to political confusion, exchange rates may fall.


When a country experiences a recession, interest rates are likely to fall, reducing the country’s ability to attract foreign capital.

As a result, its currency depreciates in comparison to other countries currencies, lowering the exchange rate.


If the value of a country’s currency is expected to rise, investors will buy more of that currency in order to profit in the near future.

As a result of the increased demand, the currency’s value will rise. With an increase in currency value comes an increase in the exchange rate.

As noted above, there are so many factors that can lead to the fluctuation of price in the rise of the naira. So if you are one who trades daily, it’s advisable to keep yourself updated to know the current price in the market.
