All fundamental analysts must have a basic understanding of what central banks do, and what a central bank is trying to achieve regarding a currency at any time. This is because when a central bank is tightening policy, currencies tend to rise in value, and when policy is being loosened, the relevant currency tends to depreciate. Central banks control interest rates, which are of prime importance.
