The result from Multiple Linear Regressions showed that the determinants factors of exchange rate through interest rate, gross domestic product and money supply is capable of influencing which has an direct relationship and statistically significant to the exchange rate. However, inflation rate and foreign direct investment did not have any relationship with exchange rate.
