This paper presents an alternative maximum likelihood estimation method for partially identified vector autoregressive models. This method might be especially useful to handle very large systems of variables by reducing the dimension of the likelihood space. As an application, we consider an open economy model to investigate the effects of monetary policy on exchange rates and term structures. We find that exchange rates tend to overshoot and term structures have hump-shaped responses to monetary policy shocks.
