How central bank interest rates affect currency trading

Interest rates are of great significance when determining currency prices. The central banks, whose decisions directly affect the flow of investments into a country, are the most important players as they set current interest rates.
A currency is representative of a country’s economy, so differences in interest rates will influence the relative worth of currencies to one another.
Changes in central banks’ interest rates usually cause fluctuations on the currency market.
