  • (written as Central Bank Intervention)
    Actions taken by the central monetary authority of a nation to influence economic activity, such as changing interest rates or altering the supply of currency. Central bank interventions can impact foreign exchange investments in ways that are difficult to predict, by causing changes to currency values or interest rates that are not directly caused by supply and demand trends.
