This article aims to study the evolution of the Bucharest Stock Exchange (BSE) and the particularities of its correlation with international stock markets during Jan 2007 - Dec 2009. The linear regression and correlation analysis on weekly and monthly data shows a good degree of synchronization between the main indices of BSE and S&P500, but also sometimes a specific behavior of the Romanian stock market that could be at least partly explained by its lack of maturity.
