Modelling and forecasting the dollar-pound exchange rate in the presence of structural breaks

No 866, Economics Series Working Papers from University of Oxford, Department of Economics
We employ a newly-developed partial cointegration system allowing for level shifts to examine whether economic fundamentals form the long-run determinants of the dollar-pound exchange rate in an era of structural change. The paper uncovers a class of local data generation mechanisms underlying long-run and short-run dynamic features of the exchange rate using a set of economic variables that explicitly reï¬‚ect the central banksâ€™ monetary policy stances and the inï¬‚uence of a forward exchange market. The impact of the Brexit referendum is evaluated by examining forecasts when the dollar-pound exchange rate fell substantially around the vote.
