I know that there are many factors that affect the Forex Market! One of these factors is inflation. The question to what extent does inflation affect currency movements. We can assume that a “loose money situation” where the government is borrowing or spending likely places downward pressure on a currency.
Government spending places downward pressure on a currency because of a factor like inflation. The extent of the downward pressure hasn’t from my research been given a a quantifiable measure. There has just been somewhat of a correlation between currency decreasing in value and an increase in government spending.

Therefore, it is still a reaction to the factors that really influence.
