Pegging

What is Currency Pegging?

Currency pegging is fixing a currency’s exchange rate to that of another country.

In an attempt to stabilise a country’s currency, a country’s government may create a fixed exchange rate, or a pegged exchange rate, to maintain the value of its currency. Pegging a currency provides benefits, such as minimising instabilities in economic activity, but can also cause problems with trade balance.
