Infographic about national currencies' dependence on the price of oil

June 29, 2015

Dear clients and partners,

We are providing you with the results of a study of the influence of the price of oil (Brent) on exchange rates, which was conducted in May 2015 by EXNESS analyst Sergei Kochergin.

The study included the world's largest exporters of crude oil: Saudi Arabia, Russia, Canada, Nigeria, etc. For each of these countries, we present both the changes in the country's international reserves as well as the correlation between the currency's yield and the price of oil. To create the infographic, we analyzed information about changes in quotes for currency pairs and Brent oil for the past 15 years.

In practice, over the past 15 years oil prices most strongly affected the value of the Canadian dollar, the Malaysian ringgit, the Norwegian krone, the Mexican peso, Brazilian real, and the Russian ruble. In countries where the exchange rates of national currencies have been smoothed out by interventions by central banks, the influence of the price of oil on the national currency's exchange rate proved to be minimal.
