Several factors influence the foreign exchange rates, including inflation rates, interest rates, government debt, speculators, and conditions of trade. Inflation directly impacts black market exchange rates. If inflation is controlled, the naira will benefit, but if it continues to rise, the naira may fall further. Changes in interest rates can also affect the economy, causing it to contract and leading to a fall in the value of the naira.
National debt can also affect investor confidence and the influx of funds into the economy, which can lead to changes in exchange rates. Speculators can also impact the naira-to-dollar exchange rate by stockpiling money in anticipation of a gain, causing the naira to fall even lower.
Favorable trade terms can increase the value of the naira to the dollar, although Nigeria is currently experiencing a trade deficit. Most goods are imported from China, India, and other Asian countries.
