Volatility transmission of swap spreads among the US, Japan and the UK: a cross-correlation function approach


  • Yuki Toyoshima
  • Shigeyuki Hamori


This article analyses volatility transmission across the swap markets of the US, Japan and the UK. The two-step procedure developed by Cheung and Ng (1996) is used to examine causality-in-mean and causality-in-variance among the three countries. The empirical findings indicate the existence of more causality-in-variance patterns during the time of financial crisis than in the normal period that preceded it.
