Testing the Basic Target Zone Model on Swedish Data
1991 (English)Report (Other academic)
The Swedish exchange rate band is studied using daily data in exchange rates and interest rate differentials for the 1980's. Applying a number of different statistical and econometrics techniques it is found that the first generation of target zone models cannot provide an adequate explanation of Swedish data. The main reasons are probably intra-marginal interventions by Sveriges Riksbank (The Swedish Central Bank) and time varying devaluation expectations.
