Measuring Exchange Rate

An exchange rate measures the value of one currency in units of another currency. As economic conditions change, exchange rates can change substantially. A decline in a currency’s value is often referred to as depreciation. When the British pound depreciates against the U.S. dollar, this means that the U.S dollar is strengthening relative to the pound. The increase in a currency value is often referred to as appreciation.
