THE BEHAVIOUR OF A SMALL FOREIGN EXCHANGE MARKET WITH A LONG-TERM PEG – NIGERIAN 

 

 

ABSTRACT

This paper is a first analysis of daily transactions in the foreign exchange market of Nigerian, a small open economy that has had an unchanged peg to the U.S. dollar for over 30 years. As a result of the credibility of the peg, we expect that capital flows will respond to differentials between U.S. and comparable Barbadian interest rates, and that this will result in uncovered interest parity, when allowance is made for market frictions and large discrete events. The tests appear to confirm this.
