Managed means the exchange rate system has</p><p>attributes of both systems.</p><p>Through such official interventions it ispossible to manage both fixed and floatingexchange rates.</p></li><li><p>7/28/2019 ECONOMICS Exchange Rate Determination</p><p> 13/21</p><p>Simple Mechanism of Demand &amp;</p><p>Supply</p><p> As stated earlier exchange rate is determinedby its the forces of supply and demand.</p><p> Therefore, if for some reason people increase</p><p>their demand for a specific currency, then theprice will rise provided that the supplyremains stable.</p><p>On the contrary, if the supply is increased theprice will decline and it is provided that thedemand remains stable.</p></li><li><p>7/28/2019 ECONOMICS Exchange Rate Determination</p><p> 14/21</p></li><li><p>7/28/2019 ECONOMICS Exchange Rate Determination</p><p> 15/21</p><p>Purchasing Power Parity Theory (PPP Theory)</p><p> Most widely accepted theory</p><p>According to PPP theory, when exchange ratesare of a fluctuating nature, the rate of exchange</p><p>between two currencies in the long run will befixed by their respective purchasing powers intheir own nations.</p><p> i.e the price of a good that is charged in onecountry should be equal to the one charged forthe same good in another country, beingexchanged at the current rate.</p></li><li><p>7/28/2019 ECONOMICS Exchange Rate Determination</p><p> 16/21</p><p> This rule is also known as the law of one price.</p><p>It is an economic theory that estimates theamount of adjustment needed on the</p><p>exchange rate between countries in order for</p><p>the exchange to be equivalent to each</p><p>currency's purchasing power.</p></li><li><p>7/28/2019 ECONOMICS Exchange Rate Determination</p><p> 17/21</p><p>The Balance of Payment Theory</p><p> The balance of payments approach is another methodthat explains what the factors are that determine thesupply and demand curves of a countrys currency.</p><p> As it is known from macroeconomics, the balance ofpayments is a method of recording all the internationalmonetary transactions of a country during a specificperiod of time.</p><p> The transactions recorded are divided into four</p><p>categories: the current account transactions, thecapital account transactions, financial account and thecentral bank transaction.</p></li><li><p>7/28/2019 ECONOMICS Exchange Rate Determination</p><p> 18/21</p><p>CURRENT ACCOUNT</p><p>export and import of goods &amp;services</p><p>CAPITAL ACCOUNT</p><p>Capital transfersFINANCIAL TRANSFERS</p><p>Foreign direct investmentPortfolio investment</p><p>RESERVEBANK TRANSACTIONS</p></li><li><p>7/28/2019 ECONOMICS Exchange Rate Determination</p><p> 19/21</p><p> According to the theory, a deficit in the balance ofpayments leads to fall or depreciation in the rate ofexchange, while a surplus in the balance of payments</p><p>strengthens the foreign exchange reserves, causing anappreciation in the price of home currency in terms offoreign currency. A deficit balance of payments of acountry implies that demand for foreign exchange isexceeding its supply.</p><p>As a result, the price of foreign money in terms ofdomestic currency must rise, i.e., the exchange rate ofdomestic currency must fall. On the other hand, asurplus in the balance of payments of the countryimplies a greater demand for home currency in a</p><p>foreign country than the available supply. As a result,the price of home currency in terms of foreign moneyrises, i.e., the rate of exchange improves.</p></li><li><p>7/28/2019 ECONOMICS Exchange Rate Determination</p><p> 20/21</p><p>DETERMINANTS OF FOREIGN</p><p>EXCHANGE RATE</p><p>1. Interest Rate</p><p>Whenever there is an increase interest rates in domestic</p><p>market there will be increase investment funds causing a</p><p>decrease in demand for foreign currency and an increase insupply of foreign currency.</p><p>2.
