Abstract: The impact of exchange rate volatility on trade flows still continues to be of great interest. More recent studies have looked that the issue at commodity level. In this paper, we consider the trade between Singapore and her major trading partner, the U.S. and investigate the effects of exchange rate volatility on 141 U.S. exporting industries and 60 U.S. importing industries. We find that exchange rate uncertainty has short-run effects on the trade flows of most industries. However, the short-run effects last into the long run only in 59 exporting industries and in 27 importing industries.
