Abstract:This paper studies the exchange rate dynamics of the Mozambique metical with respect to the US dollar and the South African rand. However, instead of using standard I(0)/I(1) techniques, the authors use long memory and fractionally integrated and co-integrated models. Their results indicate that the two exchange rates are highly persistent, with orders of integration equal to or above 1. They also seem to be co-integrated, with an order of integration close to albeit above 0 but with an AR coefficient very close to 1. Thus, although the two series seem to be fractionally co-integrated, shocks in the long-run relationship between the two variables are persistent and take a long time to disappear.
