Currency Peg

Currency Peg

When governments set the value of their currencies in fixed arrangements or in upper and lower bands against the currencies of other countries, this is a currency peg. For example, the Hong Kong dollar is pegged to the US dollar in a range of HKD7.75-7.85. The Hong Kong Monetary Authority buys and sells HKD to keep the currency within the range.
