Frequency domain approach and short run and long run causality test: Evidence from Turkey for interest rate and exchange rate relationship

Tarı, Recep
Abasız, Tezcan
Relationship between short term nominal interest rates and nominal exchange rates that the Central Bank in Turkey used as a means of monetary policy tool during the period of 1987:1-2008:1 was analysed by using frequency domain approach within the framework of spectral analysis. According to the findings, the causal relationship from the exchange rate to the interest rate was valid only for the short run, whereas this relationship was effective for totally 45 months before, during and after the crisis. The causal relationship was seen between the (1.49, 1.94) frequencies. However, in the long run this effect left its place to interest rates.


Exchange rate pass-through to domestic prices in Turkish economy
Alper, Koray; Gaygısız Lajunen, Esma; Department of Economics (2003)
In this study, determinants and the evolution of the exchange rate passthrough to domestic inflation in the Turkish economy is analyzed. The analyses cover the 1987-2003 period. In the analyses, single equation أError Correction Modelsؤ are used to estimate the exchange rate pass-through. Estimation results suggest that alike other emerging countries, the degree of exchange rate passthrough to domestic prices is high and the pass-through is completed in a very short time span. Estimations results also indic...
Term structure of government bond yields : a macro-finance approach
Artam, Halil; Yıldırak, Şahap Kasırga; Department of Financial Mathematics (2006)
Interactions between macroeconomic fundamentals and term structure of interest rates be stronger according to the way of changes in structure of worldwide economy. Combined macro-finance analysis determines the joint dynamics of term structure of interest rates and macroeconomic fundamentals. This thesis provides analysis of two existing macro-finance models and an original one. Parameter estimations for these three macro-finance term structure models are done for monthly Turkish data by use of an efficient...
Monetary Policy in The General Theory
Ekinci, Nazım Kadri (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2008-6)
The theory of interest rate is central to Keynesian macroeconomics. This paper provides an interpretation of Keynes’ conventional theory of the interest rate. Accordingly, the interest rate can only be determined in the market, if expectations converge. The central bank is a market-maker, because of its capacity to manage expectations and to affect market outcomes. On the other hand, interest rate and asset prices determine the rate at which wealth is converted into income. This may be a crucial considerati...
Debt sustainability and the exchange rate: The case of Turkey
Keyder, Nur (Orta Doğu Teknik Üniversitesi (Ankara, Turkey), 2003-6-1)
The paper attempts to estimate the primary surplus requirement for debt sustainability in Turkey, taking into consideration not only the operational deficit and seigniorage factors but also the exchange rate factor. In estimations, a modified version of the approach suggested by the World Bank (World Bank, 2000, “Turkey-Country Economic Memorandum-Structural Reforms for Sustainable Growth, Vol. I and II”, Report No. 20657-TU, Washington, DC, 16-18; 121-4) is used. The analysis is carried out in two steps. F...
Asset-backed stable numeraire approach for sustainable valuation
Aydin, Nadi Serhan; Rainer, Martin (2020-05-01)
Interest rates underpin almost every instrument/transaction in conventional financial markets. Valuation of the instruments in relation to interest rates remains meaningful only ifcashcan be attributed a worth of its own (which is generally assumed to accumulate over time). The relevant concepts such as the stochastic short rate and the conventional numeraire (i.e. the money market account) not only become restrictive when one attempts to build more realistic models in quantitative finance, but also - as we...
