We use a monetary (Dornbusch) model of the exchange rate and introduce speculative dynamics, in which fundamentalists and chartists interact. The resulting non-linearities in the model produce `chaotic' behaviour of the exchange rate. We also analyse the effects of money-stock surprises in such a model. Finally, we study the behaviour of the exchange rate when `news' occurs infrequently.
