Assessment Of Weymark'S Measures Of Exchange Market Intervention: The Case Of Japan
AbstractThis paper assesses the validity of the index of foreign exchange market intervention proposed by Weymark. We construct the Weymark index for Japan and then compare it with Japanese public intervention data to evaluate its performance. The results suggest that research using the Weymark index should be interpreted with caution. Copyright 2007 The Authors Journal compilation 2007 Blackwell Publishing Ltd
