Abstract: We investigate the effects of U.S. unconventional monetary policies on sovereign yields, foreign exchange rates, and stock prices in emerging market economies (EMEs), and we analyze how these effects depend on country-specific characteristics. We find that, although EME asset prices, mainly those of sovereign bonds, responded strongly to U.S. unconventional monetary policy announcements, these responses were not outsized with respect to a model that takes into account each country's currency regime and vulnerability to U.S. financial conditions.
