The time varying effect of monetary policy on stock returns

Dennis Jansen and Anastasia Zervou ()

Economics Letters, 2017, vol. 160, issue C, 54-58

Abstract: We find that a surprise increase on the federal funds rate has five times stronger and statistically significant effects on stock returns during 2000–2007, versus statistically insignificant effects during 1989–2000. These differences are not apparent in the bond markets.
