5 Musa (1979) s seven stylised facts on exchange rates ( from p.486 of the Burda and Wyplosz) On daily basis changes in foreign are largely unpredictable. On month to month basis over 90% are unpredictable, only 10% predictable. Countries with high inflation have depreciating currencies. And the rate of deprecation approximately is equals the differences in the national inflation rates Countries with rapidly expanding money supply have depreciation exchange rates and countries with expanding money demand have appreciating currencies In the long run, excess of domestic interest rate over foreign interest rate equals the expected appreciation of the foreign currency. Spot exchange rate tends to overshoot any smoothly adjusting measure of equilibrium exchange rate Countries with persistent trade deficits have depreciating currencies and countries with trade surplus have appreciating currencies in the long run. This relation is not obvious in the short run.
