Measuring the impact of monetary policy attention on global asset volatility using search data
Economics Letters, 2018, vol. 173, issue C, 15-18
We study monetary policy introducing a novel index for policy attention based on daily Google Trends data. This index is used in a high-frequency analysis of volatility spill-overs on US and European fixed income markets. Policy attention contains significant information on asset variances and the international transmission of policy.
