Predictability of the black and official exchange rates of North American Free Trade Agreement partners
AbstractCurrency stability is a critical component in global commerce. This study examines the informational efficiency of the black and official exchange markets in the North American Free Trade Agreement partners. Using a series of non-parametric as well as time series models, this study finds that the black market information exhibits a non-random behaviour. The results can have implications for business executives who must deal with exchange rate risks and accumulate wealth. For policy-makers, this study shows that the black market exchange rates can be a useful guide for setting the official rates to ensure economic growth and sustainability.
