Also, it is possible to observe that the volatility of the ERP, measured as its range of variation variance of the series has been decreasing through time.

The Foreign Exchange Risk Premium: In addition, having the VIX also as a relevant statistical significant variable is in line with the argument that financial markets around the world bfeeden becoming more integrated, thus, international financial volatility proxy by the VIX is a relevant variable affecting the Mexican exchange rate, specifically the ERP.

In this case, the delta has to pass through at least three points of the volatility smile as it will be explained in more detail in Litaenberger 2. I would like to avoid model-depending approachs and really prefer a model-independent approach only relying on historical data.

This is because traders trade quoting implied volatility as a function of delta. For an extended discussion of the Cauchy distribution see: The principal difference between Benavides and Mora paper and the present research document is that, the former, does not litzebberger the ERP whilst for the latter, there is a methodological procedure to estimate the ERP.


The Journal of Derivatives Vol. Among these there are risk factors, which may be consider relevant components of exchange rate variations. Excited about your ideas, Terano.

As it is has been mentioned previously an additional contribution to apply a method in the present research document, which up to date, is not commonly applied for the Mexican peso USD exchange rate.

Order Flow and Exchange Rate Dynamics. Dave Harris 1, 4 Review of International Economics. Equation 9 is substituted into Equation 8 and then Equation 10 below is obtained.

Whenever the above distribution is present, OLS will produce purely spurious results. The first isn’t a true argument, but should warrant a pause.

These factors or financial variables are chosen following Carlson and Osler and Engle, whom document about the relevant drivers about the ERP. Own estimations with data from Bloomberg and UBS. It is litzeenberger considered an additional contribution to apply a method in the present research document, which up to date, is not commonly applied for the Mexican peso USD exchange rate. Litzenbreger concept is not innocuous given that an unstable tail could make difficult the Value-at-Risk analysis.

By combining the last two equations it is possible to obtain.

We only request your email address so that the person you are recommending the page to knows that you wanted them to see it, and that it is not junk mail. In this section there is a detailed explanation of the Risk-Neutral density concept, which is relevant in order to estimate the ERP.


First there is a brief description of some research documents available in the literature, in which, there are ERP related models i. The RND can be extracted for any asset including currencies.

Again, since all the variables in the specification enter as percentage changes all these are comparable in terms of interpreting them. The idea to estimate RNDs implied by option prices was first postulated by Breeden and Litzenberger To achieve the previously mentioned objective a linear regression model in addition to a VAR model will be applied. This is the general result. Journal of International Money and Finance2, pp. The objective was to show how is it that this measure of risk-aversion proxy by the ERP was reactive to changes in financials conditions, more specifically variables related to sovereign risk, financial volatility and quantity of currency demanded.

This last component is related to market inefficiencies in which, there is a skewness toward depreciation of one of the currencies.
