Working Papers from Banco de España, Working Papers Homepage

Abstract: One and three-month forward exchange rates for the deustche mark, french franc, sterling pound, yen and peseta, relative to the US dollar, seem to be cointegrated with future spot rates, but not with current exchange rates. We confirm the unbiasedness hypothesis for this data set, as a robust cointegrating relation between forward and future spot rates, although forward rates are poor predictors of future exchange rates.
