Monetary Policy Expectations, Fund Managers, and Fund Returns: Evidence from China

Although many central banks in the 21st century have become more transparent, Chinese monetary policy communications have been relatively opaque, making it more difficult for financial market participants to make decisions that depend on the future path of interest rates.

We construct an aggregate index of manager expectations and show that, as a forecast of Chinese monetary policy, it compares favorably with ...

Transmission of conventional monetary policy shocks takes on the ...

Our series has moderately high correlation with the shocks identified by Nakamura and Steinsson ...
