III. Interest Rates: Interests rates are one of the factors influencing the exchange rate. Increase in interest rates in a country attracts short term funds from abroad and results in increase in the demand for the currency of that country.
IV. Money Supply: Money supply also influences the exchange rate. Increase in money supply in a country causes inflation in that country, and this would lead to decline in the value of the currency of that country.
V. National Income: National income is one of the factors influencing the exchange rate. Increase in national income of a country will result in higher demand for goods and higher production. Higher production may lead to higher exports from that country.
