International Journal of Finance & Economics, 2001, vol. 6, issue 1, 27-39

Abstract: In this paper, we study the regional and global integration of stock markets in Hungary, Poland and the Czech Republic. We estimate a vector autoregression with a multivariate GARCH component and perform a variety of diagnostic tests. Our main empirical result is the existence of limited interaction: in returns we identify both regional and global shocks, but innovations to volatility have a primarily regional character. We document low correlations to international markets and discuss the economic significance of the inter-market dynamics. Copyright @ 2001 by John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. All rights reserved.
