crawling peg

Definition

An exchange rate adjustment technique in which the par value of a fixed exchange rate is allowed to fluctuate within a certain range of values. The par value is adjusted for inflation and other market factors. A crawling peg allows the exchange rate to adjust over time, hence "crawl," rather than be adjusted by a sudden or dramatic currency devaluation, which would create instability.
