Details The objective of this study is to elucidate what causes the futures premium puzzle (FPP), one of the famous longtime unsolved problems on interest parity of foreign exchange markets, with the help of non-Bayesian time-varying econometric models proposed by Ito et. al (2014). In particular, we first developed a non-Bayesian time-varying vector error correction model. We secondly examined the time-varying structure of co-movement among various exchange rates applying the model to data of foreign exchange markets. Then, we found that the above co-movement have varied over time for the past quarter-century and that it has been one of the cause of FPP.
