Abstract: This paper estimates an augmented/non-linear Taylor rule for the ECB and the Riksbank to include financial instability factors. The existence of nonlinearities will be explored and assessed through the estimation of a threshold regression model. The threshold model divides the sample in two distinct subsamples, each representative of a different regime. A composite indicator of systemic stress characterizes the two regimes into a low instability regime and a high instability regime. The results are quite clear. They show us that the classical Taylor rule performs well during Regime 1, or “normal administration times"; but it shows inherently weaknesses in describing the behavior of CBs during financial instability periods, when discretion may be necessary. Remarkably such a non-linear model is also successful in not crossing the ZLB.
