When traveling abroad, you'll have to exchange the currency of your origin country for that of your destination, but what determines the rate at which these are exchanged? In short, the exchange rate of a country's currency is determined by its supply and demand rate in the country for which currency is being exchanged.
Exchange rate sites make it easier for people to plan their trips abroad, but it's important to note that along with an increase in cost for foreign currency oftentimes comes an increased price of goods and services there.
A variety of factors influences how a nation's currency, and in turn, its exchange rate, are determined, including supply and demand of goods by foreign consumers, speculations on future demands of currency, and even central banks' investments in foreign currencies.
Like any other price in local economies, exchange rates are determined by supply and demand — specifically the supply and demand for each currency. But that explanation is almost tautological as one must also know we need to know what determines the supply of a currency and the demand for a currency.
There is at least a rough level to which a currency should be worth, as detailed in the Purchasing Power Parity Theory. The exchange rate, in the long run, needs to be at the level which a basket of goods costs the same in two currencies. Thus, if a Mickey Mantle rookie card, for instance, costs $50,000 Canadian and $25,000 U.S., the exchange rate should be two Canadian dollars for one American dollar.
The exchange rate is actually determined by a variety of factors, which change constantly. As a result, it's important when traveling abroad to check the current exchange rate in destination countries, especially during peak tourist season when the foreign demand for domestic goods is higher.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
