Abstract

This paper uses GARCH models to analyse the relationship between returns and volatility on the Shanghai and Shenzhen Stock Exchanges in China. Empirical estimates using the sample data from 21 May 1992 to 2 February 1996 suggest that the variances of the returns in the two markets are best modeled by the GARCH-M (1,1) specification. Volatility transmission between the two markets (the volatility spill-over effect) is also found to exist. The results of one month ahead ex ante forecasts show that the conditional variances of the returns of the two stock markets exhibit a similar pattern.
