Using a broad basket of 63 emerging and developed market currencies in 16 short-term 1- to 4-week look-back and holding period strategies, I find strong evidence in favour of cross-sectional momentum rather than reversal in weekly currency returns. Moreover, the returns increase with an increase in the look-back period.
I show these returns are higher in the earlier sub-period but they still exist in the most recent sub-period. Breakeven transaction costs range from 2 to 97 basis points. Furthermore, I find that short-term currency momentum returns are higher during business cycle expansions and during periods of depreciation of a basket of currencies versus the USD. Finally, robustness checks and regression analysis show that currency momentum returns are not linked to carry trade returns and are reduced by rising volatility in the foreign exchange market.
The second essay examines the profitability of the Week high momentum strategy proposed by George and Hwang in the foreign exchange market. I show this strategy, which is more profitable than price momentum in stocks, is not profitable in the foreign exchange market using a large basket of 63 currencies. The related week low and the week high minus low strategies also fail to generate significantly positive returns. On further exploration of the causes of low returns to these strategies, I find the presence of non-independently floating currencies in long and short portfolios is a contributing factor.
Excluding these actively managed currencies helps in improving week high strategy returns. Moreover, shortening the length of the strategy look-back period to 4- and week also leads to minor improvement in returns, however, the improvement is not significant. Furthermore, I show that accounting for the timing of the week high event also results in minor improvements in week high strategy returns.
Finally, I find that the week high currency strategy does not generate positive returns in any phase of the business cycle and during UP or DOWN state of the FX market. The third essay studies the profitability of currency value strategies by running a horse race of four measures of currency value including real exchange rate levels, 5-year change in the real exchange rate, the Purchasing Power Parity and the Big Mac Index.
Furthermore, the returns to value strategies significantly improve when only non-independently floating currencies are used. I find that high yielding currency value strategies have considerably higher breakeven transaction costs starting from Over-the-counter OTC foreign exchange FX option market is the fourth largest derivatives market in the world. However, the extant literature on their pricing is noticeably thin, especially for less actively traded contacts, including FX options on pegged currency pairs.
Results indicate that both short and long tenor OTC FX options can be accurately priced with minimal calibration. I further extend the model to allow autoregressive conditional Poisson jumps and multiple factors in the interest rates to handle the latent interest factors in Chapter 4.
In the empirical test on G7 currencies, the model is calibrated against market FX option quotes to extract the hidden factors in both the domestic and foreign interest rates. Results show that these hidden factors have strong persistence property and certain correlation with the spot variance. Given the fact that transactions of FX option on such currency pairs are currently rare with very limited data available, I design a novel approach to estimate the model parameters.
Distinguishing from traditional option pricing model based on historical information, the proposed model is based on forward looking information. Social bookmarking:. A-Z Index Accessibility. You are in: Home Research Durham e-Theses.
