Abstract

This article contributes to the debate on stock prices and exchange rates in Malaysia. It examines the causal relations using a new Granger non-causality test proposed by Toda and Yamamoto (1995). The study indicates a feedback interaction between exchange rates and stock prices during the pre-crisis period. The results also reveal that exchange rates lead stock prices for the crisis period. In a financially liberalized environment, exchange rates stability is important for stock market well-being.
