    Este trabajo presenta un análisis comparativo del mercado cambiario chileno durante el período 1998-2008, respecto de tres bloques de economías: Avanzadas, Emergentes y Latinoamericanas. Se examinan aspectos de profundidad, liquidez y nivel de integración con los mercados internacionales, presentes tanto en los mercados spot como en el de derivados. Dentro de los citados indicadores, destaca la mayor profundidad de los mercados spot, así como la profundidad y mayor liquidez del mercado de derivados de Chile en relación a las economías emergentes y latinoamericanas. Respecto de las transacciones transfronterizas de Chile, si bien han aumentado en los últimos años, se sitúan por debajo del nivel de los bloques económicos analizados. Complementariamente, se dan a conocer hechos estilizados del mercado cambiario chileno para el periodo 1998-2008, presentando estadísticas relevantes para un mejor entendimiento del funcionamiento de este mercado y de la evolución de sus principales participantes, según sector económico, profundizando en el caso de los exportadores e importadores. Se observa un incremento de la actividad y del número de participantes del mercado cambiario, principalmente en el mercado de derivados.
