ABSTRACT Teniendo en cuenta que la volatilidad de la tasa de cambio puede afectar en gran medida al sector real y financiero, se hace un estudio comparativo entre Colombia y once pa�ses seleccionados, algunos por su similitud con Colombia en algunos aspectos y otros porque sus monedas son una referencia obligada (Euro y Yen). Se analiza la caracterizaci�n de la din�mica c�clica de la volatilidad, su persistencia y sus determinantes. Se encuentra que la volatilidad de Colombia es una de las menores (octava de un total de doce), aunque es la segunda m�s persistente. Adicionalmente, se encuentra que en Colombia la volatilidad es mayor en per�odos de devaluaci�n que en los de revaluaci�n. Se observa que el ciclo de la tasa de cambio en Colombia est� caracterizado por ser de mayor amplitud que en otros pa�ses y con un per�odo superior, lo que sugiere mayor persistencia en t�rminos de nivel. Desde el punto de vista de sus determinantes se puede concluir que aumentos en el EMBI (riesgo pa�s) generan incrementos de volatilidad, mientras que los l�mites a la posici�n propia de contado (PPC) reducen dicha volatilidad.

    ABSTRACT: The fast Fourier transform algorithm has a long and interesting history that has only recently been appreciated. In this paper, the contributions of many investigators are described and placed in historical perspective.

    ABSTRACT: This article investigates empirically the impact of real exchange-rate volatility on the export flows of 13 less developed countries (LDCs) over the quarterly period 1973-1996. Estimates of the cointegrating relations are obtained using Johansen's multivariate procedure. Estimates of the short-run dynamics are obtained for each country using the error-correction technique. The major results show that increases in the volatility of the real effective exchange rate, approximating exchange-rate uncertainty, exert a significant negative effect on export demand in both the short-run and the long-run in each of the 13 LDCs. These effects may result in significant reallocation of resources by market participants.

    ABSTRACT: This paper defines the news impact curve that measures how new information is incorporated into volatility estimates. Various new and existing ARCH models, including a partially nonparametric one, are compared and estimated with daily Japanese stock return data. New diagnostic tests are presented that emphasize the asymmetry of the volatility response to news. The authors' results suggest that the model by L. Glosten, R. Jagannathan, and D. Runkle (1989) is the best parametric model. The EGARCH also can capture most of the asymmetry; however, there is evidence that the variability of the conditional variance implied by the EGARCH is too high.
