Directional predictability from stock market sector indices to gold: A cross-quantilogram analysis

Finance Research Letters, 2017, vol. 23, issue C, 152-164

Abstract: We address the safe haven properties of gold relative to US stock market sector indices using the bivariate cross-quantilogram of Han et al. (2016). Splitting our sample into pre- and post-crisis periods, our results show that the safe haven properties of gold have a changing nature. Before and after the financial crisis, we find only limited quantile dependence and that gold can be considered a safe haven for most of the sectors, except Industrials. On a full sample (1999–2016), there are only three sectors – Healthcare, IT, and Telecommunication services – for which gold can be considered a safe haven.
