Forex Interest Rates

All up-to-date interest rates, as well as other fundamental data and numbers along with the latest market news in "RoboForex analytics center".

Forex interest rates play the most important role in moving the prices of currencies in the Forex market. Central banks are the most influential actors, as international interest rates are set by these financial institutions. Forex interest rates dictate flows of investment. Since currencies are representations of a country’s economy, differences in interest rates affect the relative worth of currencies in relation to one another. When central banks change forex interest rates they cause the forex market to experience movement and volatility. In the realm of Forex trading, accurate trading of central banks’ actions can enhance the trader's chances for a successful trade.
