Abstract

Sufficiently fast and large disruptions to the continuous price process are referred to as jumps. Cojumping arises when jumps occur contemporaneously across assets. This paper finds significant evidence of jumps and cojumps in the US term structure using the Cantor-Fitzgerald tick dataset sampled over the period 2002-2006. Cojumping frequently occurs in response to scheduled macroeconomic news announcements, however, around one-third of cojumps occur independently of any news announcements.
