Currency Regimes

Central Bank News has compiled the below table which summarizes countries' currencies, ISO codes, and currency regime.  Currency regime refers to the manner in which the currency is traded, a floating currency will trade in the market and have its exchange rate determined by the balance of supply and demand and underlying fundamentals.  Meanwhile a composite (or basket of currencies) regime, managed float, or specific currency fixed exchange rate involves the country's monetary authorities intervening in the normal function of the currency market, often with the intention of achieving goals such as stability, wider monetary policy targets, and competitive and other reasons.  The table complements other resources supplied by Central Bank News e.g. Global Interest Rates, Inflation Targets, and Central Bank Meeting Dates.
