Target Zones And Realignments
Recent contributions emphasize that the presence of exchange-rate target zones has important effects on the within-band behavior of exchange rates when agents are forward-looking. The authors find that the implications of available models are inconsistent with European exchange-rate data, and they suggest that the frequent realignments occurring in the period they consider may be responsible for this. They construct a model in which the likelihood of a realignment in the near future increases as the exchange rate approaches the limits of its fluctuation band and show that its implications are broadly consistent with the evidence.
