Central Bank Intervention – the reasons and its effects on the FX Market What drives exchange rates? What is the foreign exchange market? Where is the central location of the Forex Market? So there are a number of factors that affect the price movements of forex currencies. You've got your technicals and fundamentals; fundamentals is looking at the economics of the countries you are evaluating. For example interest rates and GDP. Every country has a central bank and the main role of the central bank is to stabilise and grow the economy. So the central banks have certain powers to help the economy when its needed; so for instance they have the power to control interest rates. So when an economy is doing well, central banks will put up interest rates so as to control spending because you don't want an economy to grow too fast as that doesn't help stability. Sometimes, this isn't enough and that's why central banks make use of instruments like quantitative easing. You might also have heard of the term currency wars... Central banks are supposed to operate independently of governments however in practice they work together.

Nigeria's Central Bank asked to unify the multiple exchange rates
 
06:36
Exchange bureaus in Nigeria have asked the central bank to step up efforts to unify the country's multiple exchange rates to sustain gains in the local currency. Africa's biggest economy has at least six exchange rates. These include one for Muslim pilgrims going to Saudi Arabia, a retail rate set by licensed exchange bureaus, and a rate for foreign travel and school fees, in addition to the official and black market rates. Nigeria is battling a currency crisis brought on by low oil prices which tipped its economy into recession and created chronic dollar shortages. It wants to attract foreign investors and strengthen its currency to ward off inflation. The central bank has been intervening on the official market in the last few weeks to try to narrow the spread between rates on the official market and black market.

How Exchange Rates Work

● We explain topics simply. So Subscribe if you want to learn while being entertained. ✔ Please like the video and comment if you enjoyed - it helps a lot! ▶ If you want a question answered then ask in the comments and we may make a video about it! About the video: You may have traveled a lot and wondered why you get more of one currency when you exchange it for another. If so, you have witnessed exchange rates in action, but do you know how they work? Watch the video to find out what exchange rates are, how to convert between them and the different systems which determine a currencies exchange rate. Historically the gold standard system had been used, which fixed currency to a select value of gold, held in a vault. The three main systems are the floating, managed and fixed exchange rate systems. The floating system has minimal government intervention, using supply and demand to determine the exchange rate. The managed exchange rate is allowed to be within a permitted band and a fixed exchange rate is usually pegged to a currency with the interest of being competitive in the international market. The video explains this in more detail and with helpful picture to guide you through the subject.

How central banks participate in Forex market?

Learn how central banks use foreign reserves to change the currency exchange rate, and how it changes with the influences of Forex traders and investors which can impact the economy of a developing country. Currency intervention: Currency intervention, also known as foreign exchange market intervention or currency manipulation is a monetary policy operation. It occurs when a government or central bank buys or sells foreign currency in exchange for their own domestic currency, generally with the intention of influencing the exchange rate. At worst, central bank intervention would introduce noticeable trends into the evolution of exchange rates and create opportunities for alert private market participants to profit from speculating against the central bank.

New law to require the Nigerian central bank to fix exchange rates
 
00:44
A Nigerian lawmaker is proposing a new currency law that would revert powers to set the exchange rate to the central bank. The bill would repeal the existing foreign-exchange legislation, where market rates are mutually agreed between counter-parties, and allow the regulator to decide those rates itself. The Bank may determine the basic exchange rate, rate of purchase and sale of foreign exchange and arbitrated exchange rate in foreign exchange transactions. If passed, the legislation would give the central bank freedom to defend the naira, which has tumbled 37 percent against the dollar since Central bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele, abandoned its peg in June. The draft has been through two readings in the Senate and will be put to a public hearing next year.

Why Foreign Currency Reserves Are Important – A Beginners Guide
 
08:18
http://illuminatisilver.com http://facebook.com/illuminatisilver Why Foreign Currency Reserves Are Important Today is Sunday 18th December 2016 and we are providing an explanation as to what Foreign Currency Reserves are and why they are important. We are too well aware that many of our subscribers have differing experiences with and knowledge of; markets, foreign currencies and International currency trading issues. So as a guide for those who are perhaps less experienced in these areas we thought we would provide a brief definition and general guide as to what they are why such reserves are important and how various Governments use them. Foreign Currency Reserves (Forex Reserves) is the amount of foreign currencies that are held by the Central Bank of a country. In general use, foreign currency reserves may also include gold and IMF reserves such as SDR’s or Special Drawing Rights. 2 Main Reasons for Holding Foreign Currency Reserves are: 1. To influence the exchange Rate. With large foreign exchange reserves, a country can target a certain exchange rate. For example, suppose a country wanted to increase the value of its currency, it could sell it’s dollar reserves to buy its own currency on the foreign exchange markets. The increased demand for this currency would appreciate its value. An example of the opposite of this happening and to which President-Elect Trump has made reference during the Election campaign, is the case of China who have historically been trying to keep the Yuan undervalued by selling Yuan and buying Dollars thereby improving their export prospects to overseas markets – by flooding them with ‘cheap goods’. This is why China has so many Dollar reserves in excess of $3 trillion worth at the current time. 2. To act as a Guarantor for Liabilities such as External Debt. If a country holds substantial foreign debt, holding foreign currency reserves can help to give more confidence in the country’s ability to pay. If countries have dwindling foreign currency reserves, there is likely to be deterioration in a country’s credit worthiness. There are Problems however in holding Foreign Currency Reserves: 1. Foreign Currency Reserves are rarely sufficient to target a certain exchange rate. If speculators sell heavily, then a currency will fall despite the best efforts of a Central Bank. e.g. In 1992, the UK lost billions of pounds trying to protect the value of Sterling when it was in the Exchange Rate Mechanism. Eventually, the UK authorities had to admit defeat and devalue the pound. This was the time when the much maligned George Soros made a $1 billion in betting against the Bank of England. 2. Inflation Erodes Value. The problem with holding foreign currency reserves is that they can lose their value. Inflation erodes the value of currencies not fixed against gold for example. Therefore, a Central Bank will need to keep buying foreign reserves to maintain the same purchasing power in markets. 3. They may lose Money on Currency Changes. In theory a Central Bank can make money through the appreciation of other currencies it holds. However, many Central Banks have been losing money through the long term decline in the value of the dollar for example, though recently this situation has reversed. Knowing all of this now, hopefully when you hear that a country has embarked on a policy of selling its US Dollar foreign currency reserves, such as China has recently, rather than assuming it’s because it no longer has confidence in that currency, which many of the gold and silver pumpers would have you believe, which admittedly could be one reason, it could also be because it is trying to maintain or prop up the value of its own currency - the Yuan - for which it has exchanged those dollars or even taking profits on some of the reserves it owns, especially when the dollar is gaining strength.

Trading the central bank rate decisions - FXMasterCourse

Trading the central bank rate decisions is often a challenge for currency traders as number of scenarios could unfold depending on what has been priced-in and what the central bank actually did. No wonder then, traders lose money. Plus, there is temptation to bet immediately after the decision when volatility is high and stops are being blown at both ends. Dr. Corvin Codirla, Fund Manager and Mentor, FXMasterCourse joined TipTV’s Zak Mir on the Tip TV Education show to discuss a simple yet highly profitable rule based ‘central bank decision’ trading system. Off late ECB rate decisions have had a major impact on EUR/USD and currency markets in general. Codirla showed how EUR/USD performed after recent ECB rate decisions and advised traders/investors to note down post ECB high and low and then trade the breakout next day. Codirla details his technique with the use of graphs and examples and also provides inputs regarding historical performance of his technique, while stating that the technique could be used in other pairs as well viz. RBNZ rate decision and NZD/USD, Fed decision and EUR/USD. Tip TV Finance is a live video show, broadcasted weekdays from 10 am sharp.

Any possible interest rate hike this year by the U.S. Federal Reserve will not prompt Vietnam's central bank to alter its foreign exchange rate policy, the State Bank of Vietnam (SBV) said on Sunday. The Vietnamese dong's exchange rate has sufficiently large ground to stay flexible against any adverse market changes at home and abroad, not only between now and the end of 2015 but also in the first months of 2016, the SBV said in a statement. The central bank also reaffirmed that it stood ready to ensure the exchange rate balance by selling foreign currencies into the market when necessary./.

108. How Interest Rates Move the Forex Market Part 1
 
04:21
http://www.informedtrades.com/25425-how-interest-rates-move-forex-market-part-1-a.html Like current and future earnings prospects are the most important factors to consider when trying to forecast the long term direction of a stock, current and future interest rate prospects are the most important factors to consider when trying to forecast the long term direction of a currency. Because of this fact, currencies are highly sensitive to any economic news that can affect the country's interest rates, an important factor for traders of all time frames to understand. As we learned in module 8 of our free basics of trading course located in the free course section of InformedTrades.com, when the central bank of a country raises interest rates this not only affects the short term rate that they target, but the interest rates for all types of debt instruments. If the central bank of a country raises interest rates then debt instruments of all types are going to become more attractive to investors, all else being equal. This not only means that foreign investors are more likely to invest in the debt of that country, but also that domestic investors are less likely to look outside the country for higher yield, creating more demand for the debt of that country and driving the value of the currency up, all else being equal. Conversely, when a central bank lowers interest rates, then interest rates on all types of debt instruments for that country are going to be less attractive to investors, all else being equal. This not only means that both foreign and domestic investors are less likely to invest in the debt of that country, but that they are also more likely to pull money out to seek higher returns in other countries, creating less demand for, and a greater market supply of that currency, and driving its value down, all else being equal. Once this is understood, it is next important to understand that foreign investors are exposed to not only the potential profit or loss from interest rate changes on the debt instrument they are investing in, but also to profits and losses which result from fluctuations in the value of that country's currency. This is an important concept to understand, as it generally will work to increase the profits for investors when interest rates increase, as the increase in the value of the currency is realized when they sell the investment and convert back into their home country's currency. This gives the foreign investor that much extra return on their investment, and that much extra incentive to invest when interest rates rise, driving the value of the currency up further all else being equal. Conversely when interest rates decrease, there will be less demand for the debt instruments of a country not only because of the lower yield to investors, but also because of the decrease in the value of the currency that normally comes with a decrease in interest rates. The additional whammy of a loss to the foreign investor from the currency conversion that results as part of the investment, further incitivizes them to put their money elsewhere, decreasing the value of the currency further, all else being equal.

The relationship between the Current Account Balance and Exchange Rates
 
16:16
This lesson will illustrate how trade flows should lead to appreciation and depreciation of currencies in a floating exchange rate system, and then explain how in the case of China, central bank policy aimed at buying large quantities of US government debt keeps the supply of Chinese currency high in the US and the demand for US dollars high in China. This means the dollar remains stronger than it otherwise might relative to the Chinese RMB, contributing to the persistent trade deficits the US exhibits in its trade with China.

Managed Exchange Rate Systems Part 1
 
10:38
To avoid the volatility and uncertainty that often accompany a floating exchange rate, some governments and central banks choose to manage or peg their currency's value against another currency. This lesson explains the tools by which an exchange rate can be managed and maintained within a range of values, using the Swiss National Bank's decision to peg the Swiss franc against the euro in 2011 as an example.

Central Bank Rates
 
03:22
The Central Bank has lowered its benchmark lending rate to 11% to ease access to credit after the rate of inflation dropped to 4.14% in October. A statement released by the monetary policy committee says that lower inflation and a stable exchange rate have necessitated a reduction in the CBR rate a move that is likely to signal a drop in commercial bank lending rates easing access to credit and stimulating further growth of the economy. Central bank however says high fuel prices and rising import bill still pose a major threat to the economy..

Kenya's Central Bank keeps interest rates unchanged
 
05:33
Kenya's Central Bank held its benchmark lending rate at 11.50% noting that the exchange rate had stabilized and current account deficit had narrowed. It raised the lending rate by 300 basis points earlier this year in part to support the weakening shilling. The currency had plunged by almost 18% to the dollar following global strengthening of the green back and slowdown in revenues from key sectors such as tourism. The bank's Monetary Policy Committee specifically stated that lower oil prices and a slowdown in consumer demand had helped narrow the currency account deficit.

Why a central bank hates a safe haven
 
03:11
The Swiss franc has traditionally been a safe haven for investors in times of crisis. Why exactly has the Swiss National Bank been doing everything it can to sully the currency's reputation? (Michele Andina & Matthew Allen, swissinfo.ch). The banking crash of 2008 plunged several countries into stagnation or recession. Investors looked for a place that would preserve what assets they had left. People scrambled out of the euro and the US dollar and into the Swiss franc. This quickly had a dramatic effect on exchange rates. By the end of 2009 the euro had dropped below CHF1.50. Swiss exporters saw the price of their goods rise, making them less competitive in their main market of Europe. To make matters worse, the Swiss franc was also appreciating against the US dollar. In the autumn of 2010 $1 cost less than CHF1. The Swiss National Bank (SNB) decided to act. It printed Swiss francs and used them to buy up euros in an attempt to stop the franc from appreciating too strongly. This came at a cost. The SNB policy was increasingly criticized for being too unstable and risky. --- swissinfo.ch is the international branch of the Swiss Broadcasting Corporation (SBC).

Mid of journalist asking question 10. SOUNDBITE (English) Mario Draghi, President of the European Central Bank "They are inappropriate if these comments are meant to instruct the ECB to achieve a certain exchange rate. This would mean violating the independence of the ECB and forgetting that the ECB's mandate is not to set the level of the European exchange rate, but to set price stability in the medium term." 11. Mid of journalist asking question (UPSOUND) 12. Wide of press conference ending STORYLINE: European Central Bank chief Mario Draghi criticised politicians at a news briefing on Tuesday, telling them it was "inappropriate" and "fruitless" for them to push the ECB to influence the euro's exchange rate. Draghi told journalists in Madrid that there had been "comments about the exchange rate from a lot of people" and that they were "inappropriate" if they were "meant to instruct the ECB to achieve a certain exchange rate." Several European leaders have highlighted the increase in the value of the euro as a potential problem, with French President Francois Hollande going as far to say the Eurozone should target an exchange rate for its currency. The ECB is forbidden by treaty from taking instructions from politicians. Draghi said the bank doesn't target a particular exchange rate but was monitoring the stronger euro's effects on the economy. The Group of Seven leading industrial nations, which includes the US, Japan and Germany, warned on Tuesday that volatile movements in exchange rates could adversely hit the global economy. There have been increasing concerns around the world that countries might manipulate their exchange rates through their domestic economic policies in order to gain an edge. A lower foreign exchange rate can make a country's exports cheaper, thereby boosting growth. But one currency can fall only if another rises - which in turn will create trade problems for other countries. This process could spark a 'currency war' - a destabilising battle where countries compete against one another to get the lowest exchange rate. In a statement published on Tuesday on the Bank of England website, the G-7 finance ministers and central bankers insisted they remained committed to exchange rates driven by the market - not government or central bank policies - and would consult closely when it comes to sharp movements in foreign currency markets. The statement comes ahead of a meeting in Moscow at the weekend of finance ministers from the world's top 20 industrial and developing countries. In light of the recent swings in the foreign exchange markets, notably relating to the Japanese yen, currency issues were expected to feature heavily during the Group of 20 discussions in the Russian capital. Much of the recent volatility in foreign exchange markets has been a by-product of developments affecting the Japanese yen, which dropped Tuesday to its lowest level against the dollar since May 2010.

From Bitcoin to Central Bank Digital Currencies
 
28:39
(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv/) In 2013 the price of Bitcoin surged to over $1100 causing central banks around the world to take notice. Four years later, the price of Bitcoin is twice as high as its previous peak and central banks around the world are exploring the benefits of issuing crypto-based digital representations of fiat monies, more commonly known as central bank digital currencies. Rod Garratt, UCSB Professor of Economics, describes his work on a project to build a proof of concept for a wholesale interbank payment system that facilitates payments of central bank digital currency using a distributed ledger.

OIL'S IMPACT ON CURRENCY REGIMES
 
02:12
https://cnb.com/global-perspectives This week crude oil fell to a four-year low, and while this is helping global growth in the foreign exchange market, it is shaking up the oil-exporting nations’ fixed exchange-rate regimes. In countries such as Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Venezuela, and Russia, oil and gas accounts for 50% to 85% of exports. These countries have a quasi-pegged exchange-rate regime because they don’t want falling commodity prices to result in lost export revenues because of exchange rate fluctuations. But with the U.S. dollar rising as rapidly as it is right now, these countries are under increasing pressure to devalue their currencies. If they don’t, their central banks will have to keep on using up their foreign exchange reserves to sell U.S. dollars and buy up their own currencies as a defensive move. The Russian central bank was the first to throw in the towel this week, ending its system to peg the ruble to the U.S. dollar and euro. This is because the central bank has spent over $55 billion from its reserves to shore up its currency, only for the ruble to lose 40% of its value since July. The central bank still has sufficient reserves but there was no point in throwing more money at the problem with so little to show for it. Nigeria’s foreign exchange reserves also hit a four-month low this week, as its central bank worked to defend its currency, the naira. Nigeria has a tighter fixed-rate regime, but even so, the naira has fallen by about 6% since July and the market has already priced in a 17% devaluation of this currency after Nigeria’s presidential election in February. Saudi Arabia, by far the largest oil exporter in the world, has had its riyal firmly pegged at 3.75 to the dollar since the 1980s. Even this rock-solid rate has recently been challenged by the market. My View: Fixed exchange rates should reflect long-term equilibrium levels if they are to remain stable. The fact that these oil-exporting nations are struggling to maintain their peg suggests that oil prices may remain low for a longer period. But it also means that in today’s world, one country’s central bank can no longer handle the huge amount of capital flows if their currency is too overvalued.

SPAIN: EUROPEAN CENTRAL BANK & INTEREST RATES
 
01:33
Natural Sound The European Central Bank is expected to resist calls for an interest rate hike during Thursday's board meeting in Madrid. Because of ebbing inflation, stable exchange rates and moderate wage contracts, it's expected the bank will feel less pressure to raise rates in the eleven countries which use Europe's common currency, the Euro. But many economists say increases are needed to put the brakes on Europe's brisk economic recovery. The executives who govern the European Central Bank - preparing for round-table discussions in Madrid on Thursday. This is first time the seventeen-member board has held one of its regular one day meetings outside its base in the German city of Frankfurt. Among items on the agenda: interest rates. Ebbing inflation, stable exchange rates and moderate wage contracts mean the bank's under less pressure to hike interest rates in the 11 countries using Europe's common currency, the Euro. As a result, the board is expected to decide to keep rates steady- at least for now. Just two weeks ago the bank boosted its key interest rate a quarter of a point to three-and-a-half percent, which made economists confident the bank will hold off raising its key rate on Thursday. Economists warn, however, another rate rise is still on the horizon. Inflation in the region still stands at two percent which is the upper limit tolerated by the bank under its own rules. The European Central Bank has raised interest rates a full percentage point since November. Economists say another hike will be needed in late spring to temper Europe's brisk economic recovery. Business in the region is growing at three percent with countries such as Ireland and Spain leading the way. The only problem is, rapid growth also fuels inflation: prices have been pushed through the roof in Ireland with inflation of four point six percent and in Spain, where it stands at three percent. In Germany, which is Europe's biggest economy, the recent signing of moderate wage contracts has mitigated fears runaway wages there would spill over into other areas of the economy and push up consumer prices. The E-C-B board is expected to announce its decision at 1230 G-M-T Meanwhile, after hitting a new low of 93 point 90 cents in late February, the Euro has stabilised against the dollar in the 96-cent range.
