Abstract

In this paper we propose a new approach for the econometric analysis of the dynamics of price discovery using a structural cointegration model for the price changes in arbitrage linked markets. Our methodology characterizes the dynamics of price discovery based on the impulse response functions from an identified structural cointegration model, and we measure the efficiency of a market’s price discovery by the absolute magnitude of cumulative pricing errors in the price discovery process. We apply our methodology to investigate the extent to which the US dollar contributes to the price discovery of the yen/euro exchange rate. Our results show that substantial price discovery of JPY/EUR occurs through the dollar, and that the efficiency of the dollar’s price discovery is positively related to the relative liquidity of the dollar markets versus the cross rate market.
