crawling-peg exchange-rate system

crawling-peg exchange-rate system

a form of FIXED EXCHANGE-RATE SYSTEM in which the EXCHANGE RATES between currencies are fixed (pegged) at particular values (for example £1 = $2) but which are changed frequently (weekly or monthly) by small amounts to new fixed values to reflect underlying changes in the FOREIGN EXCHANGE MARKETS: for example, £1 = $1.90 cents, the repegging of the pound at a lower dollar value (DEVALUATION), or £1 = $2.10 cents, the repegging of the pound at a higher dollar value (REVALUATION).
