Factors Influencing Foreign Exchange Rates
The exchange rate is directly impacted by inflation. Stabilizing the Nigerian economy and controlling inflation can contribute to the strengthening of the Naira against the Pound.
Keep a watchful eye on interest rates, as a rise in the rates at which banks lend money can contract the economy, leading to a depreciation of the Naira.
National debt levels influence investor confidence and fund influx. Higher inflows can favor the Naira in the exchange market.
Speculative activities can significantly impact exchange rates. Anticipated gains can lead to hoarding, causing fluctuations in the Naira’s value.
Conditions of Trade
Favorable trade terms can enhance the Naira’s value. Nigeria’s current trade deficit, sourcing products from various countries, including China and India, plays a role in the exchange rate dynamics.
