The economics of exchange rate volatility asymmetry

With the higher volatility of exchange rates, there is a greater positive shock of EPU, and the highest correlation for the 75% quantiles is observed between the volatility of exchange rate and EPU. However, the correlation is significantly low at drastic volatility.

Asymmetric volatility is a real phenomenon: market uptrends tend to be more gradual and downtrends tend to be sharper and steeper and become cascading declines. And the daily range in prices tends

On the Asymmetric Effects of Exchange Rate Volatility on Trade Flows: Evidence from Africa Mohsen Bahmani-Oskooee The Center for Research on International Economics and Department of Economics, The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, Milwaukee, WI, USA Correspondence bahmani@uwm.edu The economics of exchange rate volatility asymmetry This phenomenon has been attributed to the leverage effect for stock markets. For exchange rates, asymmetry has also been documented with no economic reason apparent. Empirically, the standard asymmetric GARCH models regularly detect asymmetric volatility in daily equity returns. However, these models typically fail to detect asymmetry in daily exchange rate volatility. This is probably another reason for favouring symmetric volatility models for bilateral exchange rates. With the higher volatility of exchange rates, there is a greater positive shock of EPU, and the highest correlation for the 75% quantiles is observed between the volatility of exchange rate and EPU. However, the correlation is significantly low at drastic volatility.
