    What affects exchange rates between the US dollar and the Colombian peso?

    The exchange rate between the US dollar and the Colombian peso can be affected by a number of political and economic events in both the United States and Colombia. For example, improved economic development in Colombia will usually lead to a stronger peso compared to US dollar. Lately, however, Colombia has seen a widening trade deficit with foreign countries, which contributes to a weakening peso.

    Other factors that affect the exchange rate include interest rates in both the United States and Colombia. Higher interest rates in one of the countries will normally be followed by a stronger exchange rate for the same currency. This happens because it becomes more attractive for foreigners to save their money and earn interest in a Colombian bank account, increasing the demand for Colombian pesos in the global currency market in the process.
