Factors Influencing Foreign Exchange Rates

Here are some of the causes of why the exchange rate from Pounds to Naira is seen the way it is.

Government Debt: National Debt is one reason why the exchange rate is seen this way. If the national debt can impact the confidence of the investors, it can also lead to the influx of funds into the economy. If the Inflows are high on this end, the exchange rate will be in favor of the Naira but if it is not, it won’t be in Naira’s favor.

So deviating from national debt can be one of the help needed to make sure the exchange rate favors Naira.

Conditions of Trade: Trade conditions are also one reason why the exchange rate for Naira is not favorable. If we have a favorable trade term, it will help increase the value of Naira to Pounds.

However, Nigeria is currently experiencing a trade deficit which is considered to be bad for the exchange rate to favor Naira.

We can all see to it that almost all products are being imported into the country from countries like China, India, and the majority of Asian Countries, and very little goes out as income to the country.

If the country keeps sending, it will not favor those in the country.  With these, the exchange rate will not favor Naira.

Inflation Rates: Inflation is also one reason why the exchange rate is not favorable. It has come to our notice that inflation directly has impacts on Black Market exchange rates. If only the Nigerian economy and inflation can be controlled, the Naira will benefit from it.

However, if Naira continues to fall as it is falling, this will likely mean that food and many other necessities will continue to be much more expensive every day.

Interest Rates: Another tool that can harm the economy or make the exchange rate not favor Naira is the Interest Rates. If the interest rates at which banks lend money rise, it will be harmful to the economy thereby causing the value of the Naira to fall but if the interest rate is very favorable, it will be an additional advantage to the economy in the country.
