currency fluctuations

Definition

Forex

  • Changes in currency value in relation to another currency.  Currency value is generally linked to supply and demand in the marketplace which can be affected by level of business activity within a country, or a central bank's intervention in the money supply. When a central bank increases interest rates, it can increase demand for that country's currency.
