Devaluation definition

Devaluation refers to a reduction in the value of a currency through the intervention of its government or central bank. This can be achieved by lowering interest rates, reducing the amount of currency in circulation, or lowering its exchange rate on the forex market.

 

Why does devaluation happen?

A government or central bank may devaluate its issued currency to make their exports cheaper and thus more attractive in the international market. This can cause an increase in the demand of these exports, which can in turn boost their economy.

 

Currency devaluation also occurs to make more imports more expensive, as people must spend more money to purchase the same amount of goods. This can encourage them to buy locally produced goods, which can boost the local economy.

 

The negative effects of devaluation

Nevertheless, currency devaluation carries some consequences for the local economy.

 

A country with devalued currency can attract short-term speculative inflows from investors seeking to take advantage of the currency’s lower value. This can create an unsustainable investment bubble that can lead to economic instability.

Investing in CFDs involves a high degree of risk that you will lose your money due to the use of leverage, particularly in fast moving markets, where a relatively small movement in the price can lead to a proportionately larger movement in the value of your investment. This can result in loses that exceed the funds in your account. You should consider whether you understand how CFDs work and you should seek independent advice if necessary.
