There are several factors that influence currency rates.

Prices of Inflation: It is well knowledge that inflation has a direct impact on black market currency exchange rates. The naira will gain if the Nigerian economy can be stabilized and inflation is kept under control, but if it keeps falling, it might mean that food and other needs are getting more expensive on a daily basis.

Interest Rates: Interest rates are a further element to monitor. If interest rates on bank loans increased, the economy would suffer, would shrank, and as a result, the value of the naira would decline.

Government Debt: A country’s level of debt affects investor confidence and, consequently, the amount of money that enters the economy. The currency rate for the naira will change in favor of the inflows if they are sizable.

Speculators: Speculators frequently influence the dollar-to-naira exchange rate. They save money in the hope of making a profit, which lowers the value of the naira even further.

Trade circumstances: Despite the fact that Nigeria currently has a trade deficit, if trade circumstances are favorable, the naira will appreciate against the dollar. China, India, and the majority of Asian nations are the source of everything.
