hi,

iam a grad student at an indian university. i have been wondering at
the relationship between interest rates and exchange rates. i was
trying to link the theory with the practical situation, and even
thought i would run a regression with the simple monetary model of
exchange rate determination. but while looking up the data for the
interest rate i did not know which interest rate t consider.

for example in India we have the prime lending rate and the other
rates too. can any of u tell me which one i should be using in my
analysis? the question might seem silly to many of you nevertheless i

cheers

Hi Triya,

It's me, Jade. I guess the best option is to use the
and policymakers observe and treat as the interest
rate that "lead" the other interest rates. Here in the
Philippines, that's the 91-day Treasury Bill rate.
