currency overvaluation

currency overvaluation
Applies mainly to international equities:
(1) consideration that a currency is overvalued if private demand for the currency at the going exchange rate is less than total private supply ( i.e., central banks are buying up the difference, supporting the value of the currency through foreign exchange intervention);
(2) currency value exceeding purchasing power parity. Bloomberg Financial Dictionary
