Introduction Anyone who has travelled abroad is aware that there is a certain element of risk involved in changing money. The price paid for a foreign currency — known as the exchange rate — can fluctuate. The following sections provide some basic definitions and outline the factors affecting long-term exchange rates.

Terms such as exchange rates, volatility, balance of payments and gross domestic product are introduced to illustrate the concept of purchasing power parity and the importance of capital flows in determining exchange rates.

Currencies are referred to using the official ISO codes. Exchange rates show the purchasing power of a currency in a different currency. They make the monetary value of goods, services, capital spending and investments comparable the world over. An exchange rate of e. If one currency appreciates, the other automatically depreciates. Depending on agreements between different countries, exchange rates may be fixed or floating, i. If exchange rates are fixed, the countries involved guarantee that their central banks will exchange one currency for the other at a fixed rate.

In the case of floating rates, the exchange rate is determined by supply and dem and in the currency market. As a result, floating rates can Definition of exchange rates Exchange rate systems: fixed versus floating exchange rates 7 fluctuate enormously. In a system based on a mixture of fixed and floating rates, such as the European Monetary System, parities are set and exchange rates are allowed to deviate from these by a set percentage.

The central banks are only obliged to intervene in the market when the currencies reach the upper and lower limits of the b and s set. One yardstick of the risk that exchange rates will alter is volatility. Volatility is an indicator of the extent to which exchange rates fluctuate. It is extremely important in assessing the risk inherent in foreign currency positions and forms the basis for valuing options.

Volatility is measured as the st and ard deviation of the percentage change in exchange rates projected over a year. Calculating volatility on the basis of historical data shows that, contrary to prevailing opinion, fluctuations in exchange rates have declined in recent years.

Exchange rate fluctuation has actually declined since the start of the s. Factors determining long-term currency market trends Overview In the long run, we would expect that equivalent goods in different countries should cost the same in a free market after conversion into a particular currency. The profit opportunities from cross-border trade should only be temporary. If prices and exchange rates are flexible, they should change in such a way that these opportunities for arbitrage gradually disappear.

The price alignment process starts when goods which are cheaper abroad are imported. This will cause dem and for foreign currencies. The increase in dem and for a foreign currency will result in its costing more.

This in turn will cause a gradual increase in the price of the foreign goods, and this process will continue until the goods cost the same in both countries and the exchange rate evens out the purchasing power of both currencies.

Different prices for market goods are thus a driving force behind exchange rate movements. In a world where goods and capital move freely, it would therefore be natural to expect the prices of similar products to be in proportion to the exchange rate.

This equilibrium will emerge across a long period, during which all prices have been aligned. In this trading environment with prices that are balanced out, absolute purchasing power parity applies. Global Big Mac purchasing power parity would be reached if Big Macs were to cost the same in all countries after conversion using actual exchange rates.

This figure shows the purchasing power of the local currency against the dollar. A comparison of prices shows clearly that exchange rates and purchasing power parity can differ widely. Transport costs can affect the price of the final products. This means that the same products should be priced differently in different places: they should be cheapest close to where they are produced.

But trade barriers too — such as customs duties or import restrictions — can lead to a gap between domestic and foreign prices. In addition, the cross-border mobility of the working population is low.

This can result in permanent wage differentials. Finally, a variety of goods and services which help make up the final price are not marketable. For example, you can buy real estate abroad, but you cannot use it as a retail site in your own country. Instead of individual prices, comparisons can be made between price levels calculated from baskets of goods. Changes in price levels can express shifts in the purchasing power of one currency relative to another.

The most common benchmark for price levels in a country is the retail price index. This measures the price of a basket of goods typically consumed by private households. The growth of the prices combined in the basket can be used to identify the rate of price increases, in other words inflation. The key factors determining exchange rate movements according to purchasing power parity are the prices of the marketable goods measured in the producer price index.

Потеряв ориентацию, двигалась, вытянув перед собой руки и пытаясь восстановить в памяти очертания комнаты. Споткнулась о мусорный бачок и едва не наткнулась на кафельную стенку. Ведя рукой по прохладному кафелю, она наконец добралась до двери и нащупала дверную ручку.

 Четыре умножить на шестнадцать, - спокойно сказал Дэвид.  - Вспомни арифметику, Сьюзан. Сьюзан посмотрела на Беккера, наблюдавшего за ней с экрана. Вспомнить арифметику. Он сам считает как фокусник.

 Рекомендации? - выпалил Джабба.  - Вы ждете рекомендаций. Что ж, пожалуйста. Хватит путаться у нас под ногами, вот моя рекомендация. - Спокойно, Джабба, - предупредил директор.

 - В глазах его читалась печаль.

 - Стратмор хмыкнул, раздумывая, как поступить, потом, по-видимому, также решил не раскачивать лодку и произнес: - Мисс Флетчер, можно поговорить с вами минутку. За дверью. - Да, конечно… сэр.  - Сьюзан не знала, как. Бросила взгляд на монитор, потом посмотрела на Грега Хейла.

Беккер все же надеялся, что в клинике осталась какая-то регистрационная запись - название гостиницы, где остановился пациент, номер телефона, по которому его можно найти. Если повезет, он разыщет канадца, получит кольцо и тут же вернется домой. Если потребуется, заплатите за это кольцо хоть десять тысяч долларов.

 - Он поморщился от боли и откинулся на подушки. Беккер вздохнул. Кольцо словно исчезло у него из-под носа. Это совсем не обрадует коммандера Стратмора. Клушар приложил руку ко лбу.

На легком летнем костюме, как и на загорелой коже, не было ни морщинки. Его густые волосы имели натуральный песочный оттенок, а глаза отливали яркой голубизной, которая только усиливалась слегка тонированными контактными линзами. Оглядывая свой роскошно меблированный кабинет, он думал о том, что достиг потолка в структуре АНБ. Его кабинет находился на девятом этаже - в так называемом Коридоре красного дерева.

 - К вашему сведению, ваш ТРАНСТЕКСТ перегрелся. - Что ты говоришь? - засмеялся Стратмор.  - Что же ты предлагаешь. Открыть дверь и вызвать сотрудников отдела систем безопасности, я угадал.

Он являл собой печальное зрелище. - Это сделаю я, - сказал он, встал и, спотыкаясь, начал выбираться из-за стола. Сьюзан, чуть подтолкнув, усадила его на место. - Нет! - рявкнула .
