Abstract: This article investigates the risk spillover effect between oil and stock markets using a novel multivariate quantile model (i.e., the VAR for VaR approach) and pseudo impulse-response functions. We explore the risk spillover at different quantiles using daily data over the period from January 4, 2000 through August 31, 2018. Our results indicate the asymmetry in spillover effect which is significant at upside quantiles but not significant at downside quantiles. Based on subsample analysis, we find that the risk spillover becomes stronger after 2008 financial crisis, while before the crisis the spillover effect is very weak. The international evidence shows that the asymmetric risk spillover can also be found in other six major stock indices of the G7 group.
