Abstract: In this paper we examine the relationships between the major stock markets including the U.S., the U.K, Japan, Germany and France covering a long period from July 1987 to December 2015 and employing Carrion-i-Silvestre et al. (2009) unit root tests and Maki (2012) cointegration test, both of which considering structural breaks. Additionally, we estimate the long-run elasticities of the co-integrating relationships by applying dynamic ordinary least squares algorithm of Stock and Watson (1993). And lastly, we investigate short-run linkages among stock markets using the Granger causality test across the subsamples determined according to the breakpoints. Our results indicate that these markets are mostly co-integrated. Among them only the Japanese market is mildly segmented proving a diversification benefit. Additionally, we observe a gradually decrease in the short-run relationship between these markets.
