First, let’s talk about currency pairing and forex. Forex, or foreign exchange, is the changing of one currency into another, usually for commerce or trading.
A currency pairing is the price quote of an exchange rate for two different currencies traded in a foreign exchange market. The first currency listed is the base, while the second currency is the quote.
When buying a currency pair, you purchase the base currency but sell the quote currency. When selling a currency pair the reverse is true.
So a USD to INR pairing simply means the currency pairing of the U.S. dollar and the Indian rupee are paired and traded on forex markets.
This trading occurs around the clock. Forex markets are open 24 hours a day, Monday to Friday.
The USD is the most traded currency on the market, so having the Indian rupee paired with it makes the USD to INR pairing a popular choice.
Although both are major currencies, the Indian rupee is an exotic currency. Exotic currencies are currencies that are not widely used in global financial transactions. Unlike major currencies like the USD or Euro which are based on the health of the economy and the interest rate, exotic currencies are subject to greater volatility, especially if there is political instability.
Another factor that can affect the USD/INR pairing is terms of trade. Terms of international trade refer to the ratio of export prices to import prices. If a country’s exports are greater than its imports, the terms of trade will improve.
In the case of India, its major exports include petroleum, garments, and gems. Major imports include oil, precious and semi-precious stones, and jewelry.
Let’s say demand for petroleum increases. India can improve their terms of trade by exporting more petroleum products. By improving their terms of trade, the Indian rupee is strengthened.
However, the reverse can also happen. Due to a recent spike in oil prices, the rupee fell to an all-time low of 79.11 against the U.S. dollar.
As forex trading becomes more popular worldwide, more Asian currencies like the rupee are being paired and traded.
