Some Of The Factors Influencing Foreign Exchange Rates

Below are some of the factors influencing dollar to naira exchange rate.

Inflation Rates:  It is common knowledge that inflation has a direct impact on exchange rates in the black market. The naira will gain if the Nigerian economy can be stabilized and inflation is kept under control; however, if the naira keeps falling, it might mean that food and other needs are getting more expensive on a daily basis.

Interest Rates: Interest rates are yet another thing to monitor. A rise in the interest rate at which banks lend money would be detrimental to the economy, cause it to contract, and consequently lower the value of the naira.

Government Debt: Investor confidence and, consequently, the inflow of cash into the economy, are impacted by National debt. The naira exchange rate will increase in favor of the naira if the inflows are substantial.

Speculators: Speculators frequently impact the naira-to-dollar exchange rate. They stockpile money in anticipation of a gain, causing the naira to plummet even lower.

Conditions of Trade: The Naira will appreciate against the dollar if trade conditions are favorable, despite the fact that Nigeria is currently running a trade deficit. China, India, and the majority of Asian nations are the source of everything.
