  1. Interest rate is almost the most important factor.
  2. GDP (Gross Domestic Product)

Money supply.

Edward Duffy answered 2 months ago

That is a very good question. There are a number of factors that can influence a countries currency value and strength and yes Vahid is correct but there are a number of other factors and that is political stability, the state of the finances in the country and the unemployment rate which can have a significant influence on the strength of the currency. GDP (Gross Domestic Product) or the value of goods and services that a country produces is generally fed by all of the above factors that I have mentioned above. If you monitor the currency charts whenever there is an impending interest rate decision or a person of note from a central bank delivers a speech you can normally see significant movement in the charts.

production levels of the nation will greatly influence the currency valve,high mass production means high currency valve and low levels of production means means low currency valve

Inflation is the one factor that influences the strength of a currency the most. Of course, interest rates, supply and demand factors also have an effect on inflation and ultimately the currency.

I think you always have to go back to economics basics for this type of question looking at things like inflation, interest rates, monetary policy, import / export value, tourism and of course geopolitical stability. With the outbreak and waves of COVID for example its amazing the ripple effect this has had on all economies

I think the economic structure of a country is the strongest determinant of its currency. A country with a strong economy, an advance innovation, and a robust science will surely has strong currency.
Currency, in my opinion, is the reflection of a country economy in contrast with its counterpart. If the currency of a country is stronger than their counterpart, it means that it has a stronger economy.

I think one of the factors that influence the country’s currency value and strength is the demand and supply for it. Just like value of goods and services.

GDP is the king! This the total value of goods and services that is produced in a country, in a specified period of time, usually in a financial year. I think this is the reason why the US dollar remains the strongest currently in the world. US economy is the hub of everything. So, I don’t see how a country that imports everything from cars to even razor blade, can have a strong currency.!

Jackson Mugarura replied 1 month ago

We still have some countries that even import toilet paper, handkerchiefs etc. It’s therefore, not easy for such a to have a strong currency. This is because, import a lot means that the demand for dollars as medium of exchange is high.
