    The purpose of this paper is to examine the impact of non-standard preferences in an incomplete-markets, equilibrium model of the forward foreign exchange market. I find that habit persistence has almost no impact on the mean or standard deviation of either real or nominal risk premia. With ordinal-certainty-equivalent preferences, the mean and standard deviations of risk premia are sensitive to the intertemporal elasticity of substitution; however, even extreme values of this variable do not allow replication of actual data.
