The paper extends Bernanke and Mihov’s (1998) closed-economy strategy for identification of monetary policy shocks to open-economy settings, accounting for the simultaneity between interest-rate and exchange-rate innovations. The methodology allows a separate treatment of two distinct monetary policy shocks, one that operates through open market operations, and another one that takes place through interventions in the foreign exchange market. The results that the identification strategy yields when applied to the data of a small and open economy are free of the empirical anomalies previously found in the literature.
