The paper is a generalisation of L. E. O. Svensson's simplest test of target zone credibility and the drift-adjustment method in the context of anticipated planned repegging. In 1994, the Latvian lats was pegged to the SDR basket of currencies but on 30 December 2004 the lats was pegged to the euro maintaining the existing exchange rate and fluctuation band of ±1% around the peg rate. Three currencies and two time intervals have been used leading to the generalisation of uncovered interest parity and necessitating the use of forward interest rates.
