Abstract: This paper examines the effect of US monetary policy, oil price and gold price on stock indices of BRICS countries. Vector Auto Regression model is applied to study the stock indices of all BRICS countries as a group over the period 1996–2018. We find that the Bombay Sensex responds positively to the Federal Funds Rate. The stock index of South Africa – FTSE JSE of Johannesburg – responds negatively to shocks in oil price while stock indices of Russia and Brazil – RTSI of Moscow and BVSP of Sao Paulo respectively – respond positively to gold price changes. We provide managerial and policy implications of these results.
