List of Factors Affecting the Value of AED to USD Conversion

Some of the factors that affect the value of Dirham to USD conversion are:

  • Supply and Demand: Suppose the demand for USD increases among AED holders, the value of AED will decrease. On the other hand, if the demand for USD decreases from AED holders, the value of AED will increase. Ideally, the supply and demand rate would depend on trade, tourism, investment, remittances, speculation, etc, between both countries.
  • Interest Rates: A higher interest rate in one country attracts more capital inflows and increases the demand for its currency, while a lower interest rate has the opposite effect. I.e., if the US Federal Reserve raises its interest rate, the value of USD will increase. Conversely, if the Central Bank of the United Arab Emirates raises its interest rate relatively higher, the value of AED will increase. Notably, interest rates are typically decided by each country's central bank.
  • Inflation Rates: Inflation rates refer to the fluctuation in prices of goods and services. A higher inflation rate in one country reduces the value of its currency, whereas a lower inflation rate increases the value of its currency. For example, if the United Arab Emirates has a higher inflation rate than the United States, the value of AED will decrease relative to USD.
  • Political and Economic Stability: This is the confidence and trust investors and traders have in the governments and institutions of the UAE and the US. A stable and predictable political and economic environment supports the value of a currency, while an unstable and uncertain environment undermines it. Namely, suppose any natural disaster or political crisis occurred in one country; the value of its currency will decrease.
  • The Market Expectations and Sentiments: The market expectations and sentiments of the two currencies. This is the perception and attitude of investors and traders towards the future performance and direction of the UAE and US economies and their currencies. A positive and optimistic outlook supports the value of a currency, while a negative and pessimistic outlook weakens it. For example, if there is positive news or a favourable forecast for one country, the value of its currency will increase relative to the other.
