Exchange rates and Competitiveness An appreciating exchange rate is usually thought to be contractionary and deflationary; A depreciating exchange rate is usually thought to be expansionary and inflationary; Hence, the level of the exchange rate matters for the economy’s cyclical position (output gap; inflationary pressures);.   This chapter examines South Africa’s currency market and exchange rate policies. It outlines the evolution of exchange rate policy and the factors that have caused currency movement since the mids. It also considers the measurement of the over- or under-valuation of the currency.

  Just days earlier, however, the Trump administration had added a new wrinkle by putting another issue on the negotiating table: China’s exchange rate policy. 1) A weighted average of the foreign exchange value of the U.S. dollar against the currencies of a broad group of major U.S. trading partners. 2) A weighted average of the foreign exchange value of the U.S. dollar against a subset of the broad index currencies that are advanced foreign economies.

In the last few decades exchange rate economics has seen a number of developments, with substantial contributions to both the theory and empirics of exchange rate determination. Important developments in econometrics and the increasingly large availability of high-quality data have also been responsible for stimulating the large amount of empirical work on exchange rates in this period. Exchange rate policies come in a range of different forms listed in Figure 1: let the foreign exchange market determine the exchange rate; let the market set the value of the exchange rate most of the time, but have the central bank sometimes intervene to prevent fluctuations that seem too large; have the central bank guarantee a specific.
