Long-run UIP holds even in the short run


Ackermann, Fabian; Pohl, Walter; Schmedders, Karl (2013). Long-run UIP holds even in the short run. Swiss Finance Institute Research Paper 13-31 , University of Zurich.

Abstract

The failure of uncovered interest rate parity to explain short-term interest rate movements is well documented. We show that short-term changes in long-term interest rates do help to explain short-term exchange rate movements. The relationship gets stronger over our sample period, as the liquidity of the exchange rate market increases. We also show that controlling for time-varying exchange rate risk also helps to improve the fit of the relationship.
