Depeg

To remove a previously instituted peg on a currency. For example, if Currency A is pegged to Currency B at a 1:1 ratio, but the central bank for Currency A decides to let it float, it is said to be depegged from Currency B. Depegging may occur if the peg is causing inflation or if the central bank is unable to sustain the peg for other reasons.
