If the degree of overlap is large relative to the sample size, standard GMM asymptotic theory provides unreliable inferences in uncovered interest parity (UIP) regression tests. We specify a continuous-time model for exchange rates and forward premia robust to temporal aggregation, unlike existing discrete-time models. We test the UIP restrictions on the continuous-time model parameters and propose a novel specification test that compares estimators at different frequencies. Our results based on correctly specified models provide little support for UIP at both short and long horizons. Author Affiliation: ([dagger])Bank of Canada; CEMFI, Spain
