The Ties that Bind: Measuring International Bond Spillovers Using Inflation-Indexed Bond Yields

Tamim Bayoumi and Andrew Swiston

IMF Staff Papers, 2010, vol. 57, issue 2, 366-406

Abstract: This paper explores international bond spillovers using daily and weekly data on yields on inflation-indexed bonds and associated inflation expectations for the United States, Australia, Canada, France, Sweden, Japan, and the United Kingdom. The analysis starts in 2002, by which point U.S. inflation-indexed markets had matured. Real bond yields are found to be closely linked across countries, with developments in U.S. markets determining around half of real foreign yields and no evidence of spillovers back to the United States. Spillovers in inflation expectations are smaller and the direction of causation is less clear.
