Consumption growth, uncovered equity parity and the cross-section of returns on foreign currencies


Nitschka, Thomas (2007). Consumption growth, uncovered equity parity and the cross-section of returns on foreign currencies. Working paper series / Institute for Empirical Research in Economics No. 340, University of Zurich.

Abstract

Lagged foreign stock returns in excess of the U.S. stock market return are informative aboutnquarterly exchange rate movements. A past high foreign stock return relative to the U.S. signals a foreign currency depreciation and hence low returns on the foreign currency.nConditional on stock return differentials, the consumption-based CAPM (CCAPM) explains the cross-sectional dispersion in U.S. dollar exchange rates. The CCAPM captures more than 40 percent of the variation in foreign currency returns scaled with the respective stock returnndifferential on a country-by-country basis.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
