Abstract: Theoretical models of exchange rate determination predict that increases in monetary aggregates lead to depreciation. However, several empirical studies do find exchange rate response anomalies to innovations in monetary policy. In this paper, we show that accounting for major structural break points in monetary variables leads to empirical results that are statistically consistent with predictions from theoretical monetary models of exchange rate determination.
