Abstract

The Euro Area faces plenty of financial and economic asymmetries on account of the dissimilar economies’ participation in the union. The long-term financial integration of the EA member-states constitutes a significant task for the EU policy makers in business and economic terms. This letter investigates the degree of stock markets integration in the Eurozone after the end of 2010 debt-crisis. The results reveal that the stock market integration be strong between Germany and EA core member-states but disparate for the EA periphery. In contrast, there are only indications regarding the EA Eastern Mediterranean and Baltic stock markets integration with DAX-30.
