This paper examines the impact of the current oil prices fall on Europe. We estimate a Bayesian shrinkage VAR model and analyse the impulse response functions to investigate the reaction of European stock markets to the current oil prices collapse. Using data covering the March 2002 to May 2014 period, our main result is that European stock markets are negatively and significantly affected by the crude oil shock. We prove that this result is robust to reasonable changes in the Bayesian shrinkage VAR model of the variables order and inclusion of additional variables. The findings shed light that common features exist among the European stock markets. Furthermore, the results highlight that the most exposed stock market is the French one, and that the least affected market is the Austrian one.
