Technical analysis profitability when exchange rates are pegged: A note
Bertrand Maillet and
The European Journal of Finance, 2005, vol. 11, issue 6, 463-470
This note extends earlier results which concluded that generally technical analysis trading rules were profitable when applied to several US dollar exchange rates. These results were linked to the presence of long swings in the dollar series, and here, it is tested whether they still hold in a different setting, with a quasi-fixed exchange rate system. Applying non-parametric and parametric tests to the main European currencies does not allow to confirm, in this case, the profitability of these rules. These results strengthen the likelihood of the hypothesis of a causal link from the exchange rate DGP to the profitability of technical analysis trading rules, as already highlighted in several articles.
