Abstract

Using a large panel dataset covering both advanced and developing countries over the period 1980-2015, this paper does two things. First, it explores the impacts of liquidity on the dynamics of exchange rate. We find evidence of a significant relationship between liquidity and real exchange rate volatility, which is, however, diverse and strongly depends on the way to measure liquidity level. Second, it investigates whether the nature of the linkage between liquidity and real exchange rate depends on the level of financial development of a country. This hypothesis is empirically validated in our study.
