Realized Bond-Stock Correlation: Macroeconomic Announcement Effects

Charlotte Christiansen and Angelo Ranaldo

No F-2005-05, Finance Research Group Working Papers from University of Aarhus, Aarhus School of Business, Department of Business Studies

Abstract: We investigate the effects of macroeconomic announcements on the realized correlation between bond and stock returns. Our results deliver insights into the dominating drivers of bond-stock comovements. We find that it is not so much the surprise component of the announcement, but the mere fact that an announcement occurs that influences the realized bond-stock correlation. The impact of macroeconomic announcements varies across the business cycle. Announcement effects are highly dependent on the sign of the realized bond-stock correlation which has recently gone from positive to negative. Macroeconomic announcement effects on realized bond and stock volatilities are also investigated
