To illustrate with an example, if you choose to buy 100 British Pounds in exchange for 200 US Dollars, hold the 100 British Pounds for a week and in that period, the value of the British Pound appreciates in relation to the US Dollar, you get to convert those Pounds back into Dollars for say $250 and make a tidy profit.
The current floating rates system, which we know today, was adopted after World War II and has been in effect ever since.
