This paper adopts quantile regressions to scrutinize the realized stock-bond correlation based upon high frequency returns. The paper provides in-sample and out-of-sample analysis and considers a large number of macro-?nance predictors well-know from the return predictability literature. Strong in-sample predictability is obtained from quantile models with factor-augmented predictors, particularly at the lower to median quantiles. Out-of-sample the quantile factor model works best at the median to upper quantiles.
