Last week, we worked on a macro project for Research & Risk solutions. Our task was to investigate the drivers behind the NOK currency, and to gain a better insight into how the different factors affect the currency.
We dived into a large dataset which has an aggregated overview of all NOK related FX transactions the last years. We made a script which analyses the data and produces relevant descriptive data that can be an indication of changes in exchange rates.
This have been an interesting and challenging project which has been highly relevant to understand the drivers of the Norwegian economy. I, Martine has moved on to a new project with Debt Capital Markets (DCM), while I, Ari will start automatising this project further.
