The Effects of the Asian Crisis on Global Equity Markets
We investigate the comovement of daily returns from 13 Asian and non-Asian markets before and after the advent of the Asian crisis in July 1997. For individual pairs of markets, our analysis shows a seven-fold increase in feedback relations. For the markets as a group, we find a reduction in the number of common factors that generate returns. Since the post-crisis period included the collapse of the Russian market and attack on the Brazilian real, we also analyze six three-month subperiods surrounding the crisis. We find that the perceived increase in comovement during the post-crisis interval was the result of subperiod transitory shocks. Copyright 2001 by MIT Press.
