Abstract

Expected rates of devaluation for the French franc/Deutsche mark exchange rate during the EMS are estimated using the 'drift adjustment' method. Exchange rates within the band display strong mean reversion. The adjustment term, the expected rate of depreciation within the band, is often of the same magnitude as interest rate differentials. Bilateral exchange rate limits towards other ERM currencies have a significant and sizeable effect on estimated expected rates of devaluation. The behavior of estimated expected rates of depreciation within the band accords fairly well with the theoretical model of Bertola and Svensson (1993). Estimated expected rates of devaluation to some extent predict actual realignments. Copyright 1995 by The editors of the Scandinavian Journal of Economics.
