In this paper we investigate the relationship between risk premium and a time-varying conditional variance of spot rate using weekly Swiss franc/US dollar exchange-rate data. First, we apply an EGARCH-in-mean framework to test the unbiasedness hypothesis of the forward rate with a volatility...

A wide range of tests for heteroskedasticity have been proposed in the econometric and statistics literature. Although a few exact homoskedasticity tests are available, the commonly employed procedures are quite generally based on asymptotic approximations which may not provide good size control...

This paper generates monthly risk premia data using zero coupon government treasury bills for 43 countries over the period of 1994-2006. The measure of risk premia is based on the ARCH-in-Mean (ARCH-M) model introduced by Engle, Lilien and Robins (1987). We show that the risk premia are time...

Using a vector error correction model I test whether shocks in the funding liquidity conditions in the U.S. and Europe separately explain deviations from the covered interest parity (CIP) between the U.S. Dollar and the Mexican Peso. I find that: (1) Apparent deviations from the CIP seem to be...

The main objective of this paper is to review and to replicate the paper 'Forward and Spot Exchange Rates' by Fama (1984). I used non-overlapping monthly data for three major currencies, and divided the sample into two, the 'replication' and the 'extension' periods. The results of this...

We review the recent research on time-varying risk premiums, including attempts to explain rejection by Baillie and others of "the unbiasedness hypothesis." Using spot and forward foreign exchange rates we discuss the evidence for time-varying risk premiums, relate it to general equilibrium...
