Aggregate Effects on Exchange Rates Assume that the United States invests heavily in government and corporate securities of Country K. In addition, residents of Country K invest heavily in the United States. Approximately $10 billion worth of investment transactions occur between these two countries each year. The total dollar value of trade transactions per year is nearly $8 million. These patterns are expected to continue in the future.
Because your firm exports goods to Country K, your job as international cash manager requires you to forecast the value of Country K ’s currency (the "krank") with respect to the dollar. Explain how each of the following conditions will affect the value of the krank, holding other things equal. Then, aggregate all of these impacts to develop an overall forecast of the krank’s movement against the dollar.
