Abstract

This paper reports evidence of non-linearities in the black-market exchange returns of the Bulgarian lev, Czechoslovak koruna, Hungarian forint, Polish zloty, Rumanian lei and Soviet ruble. Attempts to characterize that non-linearity using QGARCH and simultaneous BL-QGARCH models prove successful for the forint, zloty and ruble. However, the appropriate representations of non-linearities in the lev, koruna and lei remain unresolved, and a low-order deterministic characterization of the lev cannot be precluded.
