DIW Seminar on Macroeconomics and Financial Markets Monetary shocks at high-frequency and their changing FX transmission around the globe

We show that the impact of monetary policy on exchange rates has been growing significantly in recent years. Our results are established by a high-frequency event study of how key fixed income instruments - Overnight-Index Swaps (OIS) and Bonds - respond jointly with exchange rates to news about monetary policy from seven major central banks. News a ecting short-term maturity bonds tend to have the strongest impact, highlighting the relevance of communication regarding the path of future monetary policy for exchange rate movements. Overall, our findings suggest that the external channel of monetary transmission has been alive and well, even though many central banks have hit the effective lower bound in recent years.
