What factors determines a Currency’s value?

Value of a currency can be determined by several factors according to a country’s financial policy. Main factors that directly capable for fluctuating a country’s currency value are tourism, foreign investment, share market and international stock exchange. Tourism is an easiest gateway for earning foreign currency, when a tourist visits a country, he/she needs to exchange his home currency to the current one, so here they sell their home currency for buying foreign currency of the host country. From this point the visitor can use this converted currency for buying goods and make use of other services offered by the host country. Tourism is not a single way to fluctuate a currency value there are other ways, when a foreign billionaire is interested to invest in other country’s market for a particular business, so he can pay/run the business with his foreign money but he should have to pay his employees in local currency. This kind of deals stimulates the demand of foreign currency in market.

Exchange rate is based on the values of each currency, when we comparing to currencies it is easy to spot on the difference in their values, so that difference would define exchange rates. This difference varies in time to time based on market conditions. If US dollar rate for Indian rupee is 66.01, that means 66.01 rupee is equal to 1 US dollar or you can buy 1 US dollar by spending 66.01 Indian rupee.
