Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Interest rates can affect the value of the dollar versus that of other countries� currencies. All other things held constant, when real (inflation-adjusted) interest rates are higher in the United States than in other countries, foreigners want to invest their funds here in order to earn a high return. The resulting increase in the demand for the dollar pushes up the value of the dollar.
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
