is::
vt,1,i= E(St+1,i /ψt) - St,i
ψt : the information set available at time t.
According to axiom 5 (1.1.5) the forward exchange rate is the
certainty equivalent (EC) / ft,t,11,i = Pt,t,11,i + E(St+1
t+1,i /ψt) where Pt,1

forward risk premium which is the Markowitz risk premium

Modeling Forward Risk Premia

As Observed Components

In this case, it is sufficient to
Model the Forward-spot Differential

As Unobserved Components

Part I: Is the forward risk premium an unobserved
or observed component? Is an ARMA(
ARMA(p,q

for the unobserved forward risk premium always
identifiable?? If not, what are the financial and

mathematical implications?

2/ ARMA modeling is rational in the sense of Feige

After showing that εt+1,i is a noise (proposition 1),

1/ Only an ARMA(p1,q1) for the observable time series
(yt+1,i) is identifiable.
2/ In Wolff  and Nijman, Palm, and Wolff (NPW),
the noise is hypothesized to be a white noise, i.e
ARMA(0,0). A general ARMA(p3,q3) for the noise can be
undertaken.
3/ Given the ASW’s  moving average summation
theorem, we deduce the AR and MA conditions relative to
the unknown ARMA(p2,q2) model for the unobservable
