A mixed-frequency approach for exchange rates predictions

  title={A mixed-frequency approach for exchange rates predictions},
  author={Raffaele Mattera and Michelangelo Misuraca and Germana Scepi and Maria Spano},
Selecting an appropriate statistical model to forecast exchange rates is still today a relevant issue for policymakers and central bankers. The so-called Meese and Rogoff puzzle assesses that exchange rate fluctuations are unpredictable. In the literature, a lot of studies tried to solve the puzzle finding alternative predictors and statistical models based on temporal aggregation. In this paper, we propose an approach based on mixed frequency models to overcome the lack of information caused…

Long-Horizon Exchange Rate Predictability?
Several authors have recently investigated the predictability of exchange rates by fitting a sequence of long-horizon error-correction equations. We show by means of a simulation study that, in small
Exchange rate models of the seventies. Do they fit out of sample
Abstract This study compares the out-of-sample forecasting accuracy of various structural and time series exchange rate models. We find that a random walk model performs as well as any estimated
Empirical Exchange Rate Models of the Nineties: Are Any Fit to Survive?
We re-assess exchange rate prediction using a wider set of models that have been proposed in the last decade: interest rate parity, productivity based models, and a composite specification. The
Banking on currency forecasts: How predictable is change in money?
Abstract The paper examines the predictive performance of four structural exchange rate models using both parametric and nonparametric techniques. Error correction versions of the models are fit so
Long horizon predictability of exchange rates: Is it for real?
Abstract. This paper reexamines recent results on the predictability of nominal exchange rate returns by means of fundamental models. Using a monthly sample of the post-Bretton Woods period we show
The Continuing Puzzle of Short Horizon Exchange Rate Forecasting
Are structural models getting closer to being able to forecast exchange rates at short horizons? Here we argue that misinterpretation of some new out-of-sample tests for nested models, over-reliance
Exchange Rates and Monetary Fundamentals: What Do We Learn from Long-Horizon Regressions?
The use of a new bootstrap method for small-sample inference in long-horizon regressions is illustrated by analysing the long-horizon predictability of four major exchange rates, and the findings are
Exchange Rates and Fundamentals: Evidence on Long-Horizon Predictability
Regressions of multiple-period changes in the log exchange rate on the deviation of the log exchange rate from its 'fundamental value' display evidence that long-horizon changes in log nominal
Out-of-Sample Exchange Rate Predictability with Taylor Rule Fundamentals
An extensive literature that studied the performance of empirical exchange rate models following Meese and Rogoff's [Meese, R.A., Rogoff, K., 1983a. Empirical Exchange Rate Models of the Seventies:
Exchange Rates and Fundamentals: Evidence on the Economic Value of Predictability
A major puzzle in international finance is the inability of models based on monetary fundamentals to produce better out-of-sample forecasts of the nominal exchange rate than a naive random walk.
