This study examines the determinants of currency crises in ASEAN countries. The empirical results indicate that reserves inadequacy, an increase in banks' claims on the private sector, a deteriorating trade balance and misalignment of real exchange rates increase the probability of a speculative attack on a currency. The results also suggest that currency crises could be contagious.
