Free registration required

Executive Summary

The assessment of the comovement among international stock markets is of key interest, for example, for the international portfolio diversification literature. In this paper, the author re-examines such comovement by resorting to a novel approach, wavelet analysis. Wavelet analysis allows one to measure the comovement in the time-frequency space. In this way, one can characterize how international stock returns relate in the time and frequency domains simultaneously, which allows one to provide a richer analysis of the comovement
