How can I get the best exchange rate between US dollar and the Bahraini dinar?

In order to get the best exchange rate, you should compare various money-changing services against the official mid-market rate. Check banks, online money transfer services and traditional moneychangers.

Currencies with a pegged exchange rate offer an easier comparison than free-floating currencies since the exchange rate does not change from day to day. Keep in mind, however, that even though the Bahraini dinar is pegged to the US dollar, it still fluctuates in comparison to other currencies like the euro or the British pound.

US Dollar

The US dollar is the most traded currency in the world. The world’s unofficial reserve currency, it can be found in most major currency pairs. In forex, it’s an important benchmark and target rate for countries that fix or peg their currencies against its value. It is also used as the standard currency for oil, precious metals and other commodities.

What affects exchange rates between the US dollar and the Bahraini dinar?

At the moment, some fiscal reforms appear to be necessary for the central bank to be able to maintain the dinar’s peg to the dollar over the long term.

Forces that may be adding pressure on the peg policy include inflation, interest rates, and government debt in both countries. Since January 2017, the inflation rate in Bahrain has been fluctuating between 0.8% and 1.5%, whereas the inflation rate in the United States has been fluctuating between 3% and 1.5% over the same period.

Interest rates in the countries involved also play a big role. Higher interest rates have a favorable effect on a country’s exchange rate since the currency is more appealing to investors. The interest rate in Bahrain averaged 1.39% from 2006 to 2017, reaching a high of 5% in early 2017.

Government debt, more specifically as a percentage of GDP, is also used as a measure of a country’s ability to fulfill its obligations. Bahrain recorded a government debt equivalent to 82.1% of the country’s GDP in 2016. Higher government debt, as compared to GDP, makes the currency unattractive to foreign investors, putting downward pressure on exchange rate.
