Using data from global economies, this study finds that in economies with more developed LCY bond markets, exchange rate volatility is lower during market turmoil. Currency volatility is lowered in bond markets with a greater share of LCY bonds and long-term bonds, even during normal times. The findings suggest that LCY bond market development contributes to financial stability especially during stress times.
