En este trabajo se evalúa el patrón del desalineamiento de la tasa de cambio real, con base en la metodología Markov-Switching. Se encuentran dos estados de la naturaleza que acá se denominan como "equilibrio" y "sobre-revaluación. Se construyen índices de "ataques especulativos" y de destorcidas en cuenta corriente y se muestra que en general éstos se presentan durante o un poco después de la sobre-revaluación cambiaria. Los períodos de sobre-revaluación y de ataques están asociados (entre otros) con bajos niveles de crecimiento y alto desempleo en la economía. Ello significa que el concepto de tasa de cambio de equilibrio también conlleva implicaciones normativas; la tasa de cambio de equilibrio puede asociarse parcialmente con la tasa deseable y/o sostenible para el país.
