medium-term) path of the exchange rate. The focus in this type of study is on explaining the behaviour of exchange rates by means of relevant economic variables (the “behavioural equilibrium exchange rate (BEER) approach”).2 In this context, long-term (or medium-term) movements in the real exchange rate are assumed to be. In turn, EQCHANGE, the new CEPII database includes: (i) nominal and real effective exchange rates, and (ii) equilibrium real effective exchange rates for more than countries from onwards. 1 To our knowledge, it is the longest and largest publicly available database on equilibrium exchange rates and corresponding misalignments. tried to estimate the equilibrium real exchange rate (ERER) of Egypt and determine to what extent there was a misalignment between it and the actual real exchange rate (ARER) of Egypt. He found both the ERER and ARER to have appreciated from to .   There is strong evidence that real exchange rates are mean-reverting (pdf), and you should take that into account too. Estimating the rate of mean-reversion is tricky, but we can more or less sidestep this by looking at long-term expectations: after a decade, we can expect the bulk of any deviation from the norm to be eliminated.

In light of the real appreciation of the Egyptian pound over the last six years and Egypt's lackluster export growth, questions of external competitiveness and exchange rate. This paper sheds light on these issues by estimating empirically Egypt’s equilibrium real exchange rate, that is, the rate that is consistent with fundamentals.

The results show that, while the real exchange rate was substantially overvalued beforetoday it is only moderately above the equilibrium by: An equilibrium exchange rate is here defined as the level that is consistent with simultaneous internal and external balances as specified in Montiel ().

Exogenous 'fundamental' variables determining these balances are identified. Along the lines of Edwards (), a reduced form is estimated with the cointegration technique for Finland for the period   This paper sheds light on these issues by estimating empirically Egypt`s equilibrium real exchange rate, that is, the rate that is consistent with fundamentals.

This is implemented through carrying out two main steps: first, the observed real exchange rate is calculated. Then, the Equilibrium Real Exchange Rate (ERER) is estimated using three different.

AbstractThis paper estimates Egypt's equilibrium real exchange rate and exchange rate misalignment based on economic fundamentals over the period Q3–Q3. use various alternative approaches. Every equilibrium exchange rate estimate is influenced by the specific definition of equilibrium in the approach applied to obtain the estimate.

The objective of this paper is to apply the two most used approaches BEER and FEER to estimate equilibrium real effective exchange rate for the Slovak economy. This study concerns about how much economic factors have impact on real exchange rate equilibrium and how much exchange rate misalignment occurs.

The objective is to find the level of real exchange rate equilibrium before and during the crisis. Real exchange rate equilibrium is founded from Behavioral Equilibrium Excange Rate approach.

From regression estimation we will find real exchange rate. optimally estimating equilibrium real exchange rates in a panel apply to panel estimates of equilibrium current accounts in the same manner.

This is an alternative approach which incorporates the role of external debt while establishing the real equilibrium exchange rate for an economy. The subsequent aim is to estimate equilibrium real exchange rates for these countries and to compute their degrees of real exchange rate misalignment.

We show that adding the financial cycle indeed alters the equilibrium real interest rate estimates and, in line with previous studies, that there is a fall in the equilibrium real interest rate over time.
