''A Note on the Reactions of Real Yields to Different Types of Forward Guidance in the US''
( 2017, Vol. 37 No.4 )
We analyze the effectiveness of forward guidance in the United States in form of an event study. The results confirm that in general forward guidance has a significant adverse effect on US Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities yields. However, the parallel announcement of asset purchases dampens the effectiveness of forward guidance. By additionally decomposing forward guidance into three types we find that date-based is the most effective form while qualitative-based and threshold-based forward guidance show only minor impacts.
Keywords: forward guidance, monetary policy, real yields
