Currency Exchange Rates

Currency Exchange Rate is termed as the currency of one country with respect to the currency of another country or economic zone. The exchange rate is based upon a gold or any prior settled standard which enables each currency to be measured by the worth of the specific standard.

For instance, you have twenty dollars at your disposal. You need to pay in Pakistani Rupees, for instance. For this purpose, you will get your 20 dollars exchange by getting the best currency exchange rates. 

What affects the demand of the currency?

The demand of the currency is affected by the tourism that it offers, international export and import that it conducts, mergers and acquisitions, speculation and the effects of geo-political risks.
