Floating Exchange Rates In the full equilibrium we know that δ = 0 and that i = i . Insulation Because e > e0 , no overshooting would imply that the exchange rate would appreciate – and the currency Dynamics depreciate – on the path to the new equilibrium.

Insulation Because e > e0 , no overshooting would imply that the exchange rate would appreciate – and the currency Dynamics depreciate – on the path to the new equilibrium. But if the currency depreciates in value and domestic interest rates equal foreign interest rates why would anyone hold domestic currency?

Insulation Because e > e0 , no overshooting would imply that the exchange rate would appreciate – and the currency Dynamics depreciate – on the path to the new equilibrium. But if the currency depreciates in value and domestic interest rates equal foreign interest rates why would anyone hold domestic currency? They will dump dollars and buy foreign currency. This will make the exchange rate increase. When will the dumping of domestic currency end? Arbitrage Lecture Note Ickes We can see that arbitrage opportunities would arise if e did not overshoot.

Until agents expect su¢ cient currency appreciation to make them once again willing to hold domestic currency.
