  • The effects of COVID-19 pandemic on the exchange rate: an empirical analysis for turkey as an emerging economy   Order a copy of this article
    by Fatih Ayhan 
    Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has deeply affected all economies, especially the macroeconomic indicators of developing countries. There have also been changes in all economic indicators in Turkish economy since COVID-19 cases appeared in March 2020. The USD/TRY exchange rate (EXC) also fluctuated in this period. In this study, the determinants of the USD/TRY exchange rate were empirically tested for 11/03/202006/11/2020 when the cases of COVID-19 increased. This research investigated the relationship between the daily number of COVID-19 cases (COVID), oil prices (OIL), and gold prices (GOLD) in Turkey. The findings of the residual augmented least squares (RALS) regression model showed that COVID, GOLD, and OIL have a statistically significant and negative effect on EXC. According to the regression model results, the increase in the COVID, GOLD, and OIL variables decrease the USD/TRY exchange rate, respectively. The most influential factor in determining the USD/TRY appears to be the rate of oil prices during the pandemic period. The most effective tool for policymakers to control exchange rate volatility seems to seek solutions for oil and energy prices.
    Keywords: exchange rate; oil prices; COVID-19; RALS; residual augmented least squares; Turkish economy.

  • Impact of novel coronavirus outbreak-related announcements on pharmaceutical stocks: empirical evidence from an emerging market   Order a copy of this article
    by Vineeta Kumar, Varun Kumar Rai, Dharen Kumar Pandey 
    Abstract: This study uses the event study method to examine the impact of COVID-19 outbreak-related announcements on the returns and volatility of 74 exchange-listed Indian pharmaceutical stocks. We find significant negative effects of pandemic-related announcements on stock returns and volatility in an emerging market, particularly during the declaration of a global pandemic. Further, small-cap stocks are hit harder than large-cap and mid-cap stocks. We also use abnormal volatility to assess the outbreaks impact on market volatility. We also find waning effects in the post-event window analysis. Our findings are consistent with current literature.
    Keywords: event study; market model; abnormal return; abnormal volatility; emerging market; COVID-19; global pandemic.

  • The impact of low interest rates on the bank profitability   Order a copy of this article
    by Tomáš Fabian, Kristína Kočišová 
    Abstract: The recent negative interest rate policy implemented by the European Central Bank (ECB) has raised concerns about the impact of interest rates on bank profitability. Therefore, this paper aims to study the determinants of banking profitability in the European Union (EU) countries. Using annual macro-level data for the period 20082018, we examine the impact of banking sector, macroeconomic, and competition variables on the aggregate profitability of the banking sectors by using a panel data methodology. We find a positive relationship between short-term rates and negative relationship long-term rates. Hence, our findings indicate that monetary policy significantly influences bank profits in EU countries.
    Keywords: bank profitability; low interest rate policy; European Union countries; banking sector variables; macroeconomic variables; competition; short-term interest rate; long-term interest rate; panel data.
