Why Do CFA To Naira Rates Fluctuate?

A lot of people wonder why the CFA to Naira exchange rate fluctuates. Sometimes it is higher, sometimes lower. The factors that affect the exchange rate have been explain below:-

  •  The balance of supply and demand directly affects exchange rates. Higher demand for CFA Francs compared to the supply will increase its value in terms of Naira, and vice versa.
  • Policies like inflation rates, interest rates, and economic growth in Nigeria and the CFA Franc zone influence exchange rates. For example, high inflation in Nigeria can depreciate the Naira, making CFA Francs more expensive.
  •  In Nigeria, restrictions on the amount of foreign currency that can be exchanged officially often increase demand in the black market, causing rate fluctuations.
  • Global events, such as changes in oil prices or international trade dynamics, can influence local currencies. For instance, a drop in oil prices can reduce Nigeria’s foreign exchange reserves, affecting the Naira’s value.
