Classical and Impulse Stochastic Control of the Exchange Rate Using Interest Rates and Reserves
AbstractWe consider the problem of a Central Bank that wants the exchange rate to be as close as possible to a given target, and in order to do that uses both the interest rate level and interventions in the foreign exchange market. We model this as a mixed classical-impulse stochastic control problem, and provide for the first time a solution to that kind of problem. We give examples of solutions that allow us to perform an interesting economic analysis of the optimal strategy of the Central Bank. Copyright Blackwell Publishers, Inc..
