Empirical identification of currency crises: differences and similarities between indicators
Empirical studies about currency crises use very different methods to identify in which moment these actually take place. This study carries out a broad review of these indicators; they are reproduced for a period of time and are sampled in several common countries. After that they are compared to each other through a cluster analysis. The results indicate that there are considerable differences between how each one signals the crises.
