The topics covered include: - the interest rate parity conditions that underlie exchange rate economics, with a focus on understanding the foreign exchange risk premium; - the behavior of the real exchange rate and deviations from purchasing power parity; - the modeling of equilibrium real exchange rates, and exchange rate management through official foreign exchange market intervention; - the relationship between the nominal exchange rate and economic fundamentals suggested by open-economy macroeconomic theory, with reference to in-sample modeling and out-of-sample forecasting of the exchange rate; - other approaches to explaining and forecasting exchange rates, including models exploiting the information in the term structure of forward premia and microstructural models based on order flow.
