The Exchange Rate

The exchange rate is the price of one currency relative to another, for example 1€ is £0.88 and £1 is $1.64. There are four types of exchange rate mechanisms, shown below on the scale. Freely floating has little/no management while rigidly fixed is managed by the country's Central Bank.
