An economic theory regarding the long term correlation between the level of interest rates and inflation in an economy. The Fisher effect indicates that a rise or fall in inflation will eventually lead to a corresponding rise or fall in interest rates to a similar extent. As a result, forex traders expect that inflationary pressures tend to precede a rise in interest rates and so the affected currency tends to appreciate.
