CAD to INR Exchange Rate
Ahh, India: the country that brought you chess, the Taj Mahal and, of course, the neti pot.
What influences the CAD/INR exchange rate?
When reviewing the Indian rupee (INR) exchange rate, it’s important to keep in mind that the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) applies a managed float exchange rate policy to the INR/USD relationship, which means that the RBI routinely trades in the forex market to ensure the USD/INR exchange rate isn’t too volatile. This policy may have subsequent effects on the CAD/INR exchange rate, because the Canadian dollar is often evaluated against the strength of its primary trade partner the U.S.
The Canadian dollar (CAD) works under a floating exchange rate regime. Therefore, the CAD exchange rate may be determined by supply and demand. Other factors that might influence CAD’s value include commodity prices, interest rates, and inflation rates.1
