A situation in which one currency links its value to that of another currency, but allows it to fluctuate within certain limits. This differs from a straight peg, which has one currency permanently valued at a certain amount in relation to another currency; it also differs from a floating currency, which changes in value according to market factors. A crawling peg may be valuable if a currency would otherwise be exceptionally volatile; it allows the currency to fluctuate to an acceptable level.
