How policies can affect currencies: At all exchange rates, any political problems or instability can affect the EUR / USD pair. one of the examples is that if a country threatens the coalition countries of France, Germany, Italy or Russia. The political or financial instability in Russia is also a warning sign for the EUR / USD, due to the large amount of investments in Russia, as well as the news of decisions used to continue having relations with a certain country or not.


4. Interest rates

The economic theory shows that there is an interrelation between interest and exchange rates. It is known as the "International Fisher effect". And in most cases it is. Generally, currencies can go up or down according to the interest rates of the economies. One example is, when United State interest rates are higher than those of the European Union, the US dollar will strengthen against the euro. It is the opposite if the interest rates are higher than the eurozones they cause the dollar to weaken.
