Details

fxlm is a function for fitting exchange rate regression models also known as Frankel-Wei models. It is a simple convenience interface to lm: data is assumed to be a "zoo" series in which, by default, the first column is the dependent variable. If formula is omitted, the first column is regressed on the remaining columns in data. The main difference compared to plain lm models is that the error variance is reported as a full parameter (estimated by maximum likelihood) in the coef method and the estfun method (but currently not in the vcov method). Furthermore, the index (also known as the time stamps) of the underlying data set can be extracted by the time/index method.

Value

An object of class "fxlm" inheriting from "lm".

## load package and data
library("fxregime")
data("FXRatesCHF", package = "fxregime")

## compute returns for CNY (and explanatory currencies)
## for one year after abolishing fixed USD regime
cny <- fxreturns("CNY", frequency = "daily",
  start = as.Date("2005-07-25"), end = as.Date("2006-07-24"),
  other = c("USD", "JPY", "EUR", "GBP"))

## estimate full-sample exchange rate regression
fm <- fxlm(CNY ~ USD + JPY + EUR + GBP, data = cny)
coef(fm)
summary(fm)

## test parameter stability (with double max test)
scus <- gefp(fm, fit = NULL)
plot(scus, aggregate = FALSE)
## which shows a clear increase in the variance in March 2006

## alternative tests: Andrews' supLM ...
plot(scus, functional = supLM(0.1))
## ... or Nyblom-Hansen test (Cramer-von Mises type test)
plot(scus, functional = meanL2BB)
