Abstract: In this study, we investigate dynamic integration and risk transmission among a set of six well-established crude oil markets by combining frequency connectedness (Barunik and Krehlik, 2018) with the time-varying parameter connectedness approach (Antonakakis et al., 2020). Our study covers the period from May 1996 to December 2020 and focuses on crude oil price volatility. We measure connectedness for both a high and a low-frequency band. Findings are suggestive of relatively strong co-movements over time. For the most part of the sample period, connectedness occurs in the short-run; nonetheless, starting approximately in 2010, long-run connectedness gains much prominence until at least the end of 2015. Long-run connectedness is also prevalent at the beginning of 2020 caused by the COVID pandemic. We opine that periods of increased long-run connectedness relate to deeper changes in the market for crude oil that bring about new dynamics and associations within the specific network.
