A Non-parametric analysis of ERM exchange rate fundamentals
José L. Torres
In this paper we present evidence concerning the number of common stochastic trends in three major ERM exchange rates. The results indicate the presence of a single common trend driving these currencies and from this we suggest that the common trend can be considered as the ERM non-parametric fundamentals for the three selected currencies. Using a non-parametric technique, the Alternating Conditional Expectations (ACE) algorithm, we obtain evidence of the existence of non-linearities for two out of three currencies with a functional form, related to the estimated non-parametric fundamentals, close to the S-shape given by the basic target zone model.
