In this revision topic video we look at the reasons why a central bank / government might opt for a managed floating currency system and the options for intervention in currency markets if they want to influence the level of the exchange rate.

A managed-floating currency occurs when the central bank may choose to intervene in the foreign exchange markets to affect the value of a currency to meet specific macroeconomic objectives.
