Abstract

In this paper we provide additional evidence on expiration effects in the Ibex 35 stock index futures market using realized volatility as proposed in Andersen et al. (2003, Econometrica 71, 529-626). Our findings reveal not only a significant increase in spot trading activity, but also the existence of a significant jump in spot volatility at index futures expiration. Moreover, we analyze the importance of the data frequency considered, revealing that the use of GARCH methodology from daily data does not have the ability to statistically assess such expiration-day effect. Additional empirical evidence is provided for the S&P 500 stock index futures market. Neither unconditional nor conditional realized volatility has a significant increase at expiration for the US market, suggesting that this effect is specific for the Spanish market, at least for the period analyzed. Este artículo proporciona nueva evidencia empírica sobre el efecto del vencimiento de los contratos de futuros sobre el índice IBEX 35, utilizando la medida de volatilidad realizada propuesta en Andersen et al. (2003, Econometrica 71, 529-626). Nuestros resultados ponen de manifiesto que al vencimiento de los contratos de futuros se produce no sólo un incremento en el volumen negociado en el mercado de contado, sino también un incremento significativo de la volatilidad del activo subyacente. Además, el trabajo pone de manifiesto la importancia de contar con información intradía para llevar a cabo el análisis empírico. De hecho, el uso de la metodología GARCH a partir de datos diarios no permite apreciar las anomalías que se producen en el mercado de contado cuando vencen los contratos de futuros. También se proporciona evidencia empírica relativa al mercado de futuros sobre el índice S&P 500. En este caso, ni la volatilidad condicionada ni la volatilidad no condicionada aumentan significativamente en los días de vencimiento de los contratos de futuros, sugiriendo que la evidencia reportada en este trabajo constituye una característica específica del mercado español, al menos durante el periodo analizado.
