A Nonparametric Study of Real Exchange Rate Persistence over a Century

Abstract: This paper estimates the degree of persistence of 16 long-horizon real exchange rates relative to the US dollar. We use nonparametric operational algorithms by El-Gamal and Ryu (2006) for general nonlinear models based on two statistical notions: the short memory in mean (SMM) and the short memory in distribution (SMD). We found substantially shorter maximum half-life (MHL) estimates than the counterpart from linear models, which is robust to the choice of bandwidth with exceptions of Canada and Japan.
