Abstract

This paper investigates the causal relationships between volatility in Saudi stock market and banks credit for equity investments. Our finding indicate there is a bi-directional feedback effects between the stock price volatility and banks credit loans. In other words, volatility in private credit for equity investments influence volatility in stock price and vice versa. A policy implication of such result is that regulating private credit loans in banking sector could reduce the upnormal swings in Saudi Stock prices.
