This paper identifies five factors that can capture 95% of the variance across 39 US dollar exchange rates based on the principal component method. A time-varying parameter factor-augmented vector autoregressive (TVP-FAVAR) model is used to analyze the determinants of movements in these exchange rates, revealing that impact of global oil prices and China¡¯s growth has increased significantly since 2008. In particular, shocks to these two fundamentals drive the movements of both commodity and non-commodity currencies recently. The impact of monetary policy shocks on the currency pairs is comparatively small.
