No 195, DEM Working Papers Series from University of Pavia, Department of Economics and Management

Abstract: Turning points in financial markets are often characterized by changes in the direction and/or magnitude of market movements with short-to-long term impacts on investors’ decisions. This paper develops a Bayesian technique to turning point detection in financial equity markets. We derive the interconnectedness among stock market returns from a piece-wise network vector autoregressive model. The empirical application examines turning points in global equity market over the past two decades. We also compare the Covid-19 induced interconnectedness with that of the global financial crisis in 2008 to identify similarities and the most central market for spillover propagation
