Currencies are always traded in pairs and how strong a pair is, it is measured by how one currency moves against the other. For example, the EUR/USD pair shows the value of the Euro against the US Dollar. It tells how many dollars you can buy with 1Euro. When the value of a pair is increased, this means the Euro is coming stronger toward Dollar. When the value of a pair is decreased, this means the USD is coming stronger toward an unchanged value of Euro, or the Euro is coming weaker towards USD.

It is an exclusive task of central banks to manage monetary and financial stability. They do all this to influence interest rates. If the central bank increases the interest rate it brings an increase in the demand for that currency. Why? Because the currency is appreciated related to the other currencies.

Economic data are reports delivered in certain period of times, which helps traders to know about the performance of a state. Some of the main reports which influences currency rates are CPI (inflation) data, Nonfarm payrolls (employment data), gross domestic product (GDP), retails sales, purchasing managers index (PMI) and others.
