Industry-specific exchange rates for the United States

The trade-weighted exchange rates constructed for the aggregate U.S. economy do not always capture the changes in industry competitive conditions induced by movements in specific bilateral exchange rates.

A comparison of measures of core inflation

The ability of central banks to differentiate between permanent and transitory price movements is critical for the conduct of monetary policy.

Correlation products and risk management issues

Unlike standard derivatives instruments, correlation products contain nonseparable risk, meaning that the price sensitivity of one risk factor is a function of the level of another risk factor.

Standards, information, and the demand for student achievement

Higher student achievement, say the authors, has been severely hampered by a lack of good information comparing achievement levels with today's labor market requirements.

The securities industry and the New York - New Jersey region

The author finds that the securities industry in the New York-New Jersey region, while vulnerable to stock and bond market fluctuations, is enjoying strong growth in employment and salaries.

Support for resistance: technical analysis and intraday exchange rates

?Support? and ?resistance? levels?points at which an exchange rate trend may be interrupted and reversed?are widely used for short-term exchange rate forecasting. Nevertheless, the levels? ability to predict intraday trend interruptions has never been rigorously evaluated. This article undertakes such an analysis, using support and resistance levels provided to customers by six firms active in the foreign exchange market. The author offers strong evidence that the levels help to predict intraday trend interruptions. However, the levels? predictive power is found to vary across the exchange ...
