Foreign Exchange Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

Foreign exchange typically refers to the exchange rate or the foreign exchange market. The foreign exchange is the global market for currency trading. The foreign exchange market determines the value of all different currencies. International investments and trade are handled by the foreign exchange by converting currency from one currency to another. A business or individual can purchase one currency using another currency. This process allows transactions to be completed in a different currencies. The foreign exchange market is unique. Factors that make the foreign exchange market unique are its continuous operation, large trading volume, and geographical dispersion. In addition, this market uses leverage to enhance profit margins. The foreign exchange is a floating exchange rate rather than a fixed exchange regime. Due to this fact, there are many influences which cause exchange rate fluctuations. Overall, exchange rates are affected by a variety of factors. Factors which can and do affect foreign exchange rates are political conditions, economic factors and market psychology. Economic factors which may affect the foreign exchange rate are inflation levels and trends, a balance of the trade levels and trends, government budgets and government fiscal policy. Political conditions, such as destabilization of a government and political upheaval can negatively impact a country’s economy and therefore also have an effect on the foreign exchange.
