Abstract

This paper analyzes the causal relationships between returns and volatilities of assets prices in U.S. and French markets. The period for the study has been taken from January 1997 to December 2000, using daily and weekly data. Initial results show that U.S. stock prices "Granger-cause" French stock prices, while changes in French and American stock prices influence significatively the euro/dollar exchange rate. Moreover, it appears that the volatilities of stock markets are linked (with causal feedback), and that they affect the exchange rate volatility. Finally, with weekly data we highlight that the euro/dollar volatility "Granger-cause" the rate of return on stocks.
