Their important findings for the US Treasury market was that term structure models with volatilities more highly sensitive to the level of rates have a closer fit to the data. 1. 5 and far higher than assumed by the other interest rate models. Since banks trade in a range of international currencies extensive empirical analysis has been carried out in other markets. Examples include Dahlquist [1996], who considered rates for Denmark, Sweden, Germany and the United Kingdom; Hiraki and Takezawa [1997] considered offshore rates in Japan; Tse [1995] considered money market rates for 11 countries and Adkins and Krehbiel [1999] looked at London Interbank Offer rates.

Sundaresan [2000] provides a major review of these developments, continuous time models in finance and their many applications. There are a number of other advantages of continuous time modelling and the reader is referred to Bergstrom [1990, Ch. 1, 1996] and Gandolfo [1981, 1993] for further discussion and motivation. One of the disadvantages of continuous time modelling is that the estimation of these models has involved the development of complicated and sometimes specialized econometric methods that have in the past largely remained in the province of econometric theorists and finance specialists.
