The Impact of Trade Announcements on Financial Markets. An Event Study Analysis

Adrian Cantemir Calin

Journal for Economic Forecasting, 2015, issue 2, 81-91

Abstract: The financial markets tend to react to a large range of macroeconomic events. We investigate the reaction of currencies to foreign trade announcements for a series of countries with liquid financial markets. Our analysis uses the econometric event study methodology by fitting a FIGARCH model and capturing the reaction of the volatilities of returns around these announcements. We find that the trade announcements have a considerable influence on the currencies considered in this analysis, especially on those with a high degree of liquidity.
