MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: This paper examines the effectiveness of futures-based foreign exchange (FX) intervention in determining the exchange rate dynamics and exchange rate pass-through effect. We specifically compare the case of Brazil and India to evaluate and take a lesson learned from those countries’ policy designs and outcomes in utilizing the futures-based FX intervention. By utilizing autoregressive and distributed lag estimations, our empirical results show that the futures-based FX interventions in Brazil are effective in determining the exchange rate movement and reducing exchange rate pass-through, while the futures-based intervention in India is neutral. The results are also confirmed in the robustness checks estimations. The finding implies that the effectiveness of futures-based FX intervention is related to the economic-institutional aspects within these countries, which also suggests that an effective futures-based FX intervention occurs only under specific circumstances.
