Abstract:

We provide new empirical evidence that the world currency variance risk premium, constructed as an average of the variance risk premiums of available currencies with respect to the U.S. dollar, significantly predicts the appreciation rates of 22 currencies. The predictability is maximized at the 4-months horizon,the gains in R2s are substantial compared with the interest rate differential. We also show that the stock variance risk premium, measured as the U.S. stock variance risk premiumas an average of those of major countries, has non-redundantsignificant predictive power for the appreciation rates of all 22 currencies, especially at the 1-month horizon. These time-variations in expected currency returns help to provide a risk-based interpretation of the forward premium puzzle.
