This paper used yearly panel data analysis; the data was collected for 9 years which started from the year 2007 until 2016 were most upto date data. SPSS used as statistical analysis tools. The relation between factors and exchange rate is consistent with theory and it is so difficult to say the exchange rate movement is as a result those major factors. The regression weight result shows that the above factors are not significant to determine the exchange rate. GDP seems that had significant impact for the determination exchange rate, however the correlation matrix evidence that the relation between GDP and exchange rate was positive. This is not support the theoretical relationship between these two variables. Political stability can be taken as the major factors affecting movement of exchange rate.
