Foreign exchange rate has an inverse relationship with the demand for the foreign currency and direct relation with the supply of foreign currency.
When price of foreign exchange rises, value of domestic currency decreases, import becomes costlier and thus domestic demand for foreign goods fall. Due to the fall in imports, the demand for foreign currency will also fall.
