Exchange Rate Volatility Before and After the Float
MetadataShow full item record
This paper provides a descriptive analysis of broad features of major exchange rates since the early 1970s and compares these features with those of the 1960s. The analysis is then extended to investigate whether these features are manifested in interest rates and in commodity prices. The results indicate that while the exchange rates have become more volatile during the current floating rate regime, the moments are comparable with those for interest rates and commodity prices.
