10 Factors Affecting Increase & Fall In Price of Euro Rate In Nigerian

So what are the reasons for the rise and fall in price of Euro rate in Nigeria? Here are few factors contributing to that.

1. Inflation

The rise in prices of goods and services in a country reduce the volume or quantity of goods and services you can buy thereby reducing the value of the naira against that of euro.

Record shows Europe has low inflation rates and Nigeria has a high inflation rate. Hence, the purchasing power of Euros increases thereby increasing the value of euro to naira today.

That explains it. You have 1000 naira note and you feel you are okay. Just get few things and the money is finished.

Sometimes you may even think you’ve misplaced some money. All thanks to inflation.

2. Looting of public fund

This happens when government officials prefer to boost and aid the economy of foreign countries. This they do when they loot a huge sum of money and invest such money in Europe.

Hence the value of the euro rises and that of naira falls. This explains the rise in the exchange rate of the euro to naira today.

3. Consumption of imported goods

So many Nigerians lack appreciation for our own naija made products. We prefer to go for foreign products. In fact ordinary malaria, we prefer to travel out of our country to treat.

We forget that when we do such, we are only helping foreign countries like Europe and as such leading to rise in the value of their currency at the detriment of our beloved naira.

4. Lack of trust in Naira

Due to the fact that Nigerians don’t have peace of mind with naira, they prefer to stash a huge sum of Euro rather than saving in naira.

Why? They feel the value of Naira can fall at any time.

They forget that such deeds will only lead to more demand of euro thereby influencing the exchange rate of euro to naira today.

5. Terrorism

Foreign investors took to their heels due to the terrorist attack in the northern part of the country and as such, these have lead to a drastic reduction in their investment.

This means there is a decrease in foreign capital thereby leading to depreciation of the naira and the appreciation of euro to naira today.

6. Public debt

Nigeria’s debt is on the rise. As at 2018, Nigeria’s debt office record N22.4 trillion. Large debt leads to inflation so the country can pay back.

This spells out why the exchange rate of euro to naira today is high.

A country in huge debt scares away foreigners and investors as they won’t be ready to invest in the country’s currency if they speculate that the country may find it difficult to pay back.

When investors don’t invest, the exchange rate will rise. Besides in other to pay back debts, the country may decide to reduce the price of securities thereby leading to rise of euro and fall of naira.

7. Over dependence on crude oil

Nigeria as the 8th largest producer of crude oil has solely depended on the exportation of crude oil.

Recently foreign countries cut monthly importation from Nigeria. This leads to falling in naira and rise of Euro.

Also the drastic fall in exporting value and price of crude oil leads to high exchange rate of euro to naira today.

8. Terms of Trade

Differences between exportation price and importation prices determine the value of the currency of the two countries involved.

When the price of exporting from Nigeria is far higher than importing from Europe, there is increased demand for Naira thereby, increasing the value of euro to naira today.

However, when the exportation price is slightly higher or lower than the importation price, the naira value decreases compared to euro.

9. Scarcity

Scarcity of foreign currency leads to high exchange rate of euro to naira today as there is high competition for the little available.

10. Interest Rate

Higher interest rate allures foreign investors thereby leading to rise in the value of euro to naira today since Low interest rate leads to reduced exchange rate.

Euro to Naira Today (Summary)

Compared to how we started from independence, euro to naira today has really gone haywire. This shows how much our currency “naira” has really being devalued.

We can’t leave it to CBN alone, as individuals we should strive to take all precautions that will help the carrier of naira.

Rather than importing all our needs and wants, let’s believe in our own made goods and services. Even if it won’t go back to how it used to be, it can still be curtailed.
