List of Factors Affecting the Value of CNY to INR Conversion

Some factors that affect the value of Yuan to INR conversion are as follows: 

Supply and Demand

If there's a higher demand for CNY among INR holders, the value of INR will go down. Conversely, if the demand for CNY decreases among INR holders, the value of INR will rise. However, these supply and demand dynamics are typically influenced by trade, tourism, investments, remittances, and speculative activities between the two countries.

Interest Rates

A higher interest rate in a particular country attracts more capital inflow and boosts the demand for its currency, while a lower interest rate has the opposite impact. For instance, if the People's Bank of China (PBOC) raises the CNY interest rate, the value of CNY will increase. On the other hand, if the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) raises INR interest rates relatively higher, the value of INR will increase. 

Inflation Rates

Inflation rates represent the changes in the prices of goods and services. A higher inflation rate in a country diminishes the worth of its currency, whereas a lower inflation rate enhances its currency's value. Namely, if India experiences a higher inflation rate than China, the INR value will decrease relative to CNY.

Political and Economic Stability

This refers to the confidence and trust both investors and traders alike have in the governments and institutions of India and China. A stable and foreseeable political and economic environment reinforces a currency's value, whereas an unstable and unpredictable setting weakens it. For example, if either country experiences a natural disaster or a political crisis, the value of its currency will decline.

The Market Expectations and Sentiments

This is the perception and attitude of investors and traders towards the future performance and direction of the Indian and Chinese economies and their currencies. A positive and optimistic outlook supports the value of a currency, while a negative and pessimistic outlook erodes it. I.e., if there is positive news or a favourable forecast for one country, the value of its currency will increase relative to the other.
