Vargas, Gregorio A. (2008): What Drives the Dynamic Conditional Correlation of Foreign Exchange and Equity Returns?
Download (115Kb) | Preview
This paper establishes the link of microstructure and macroeconomic factors to the time-varying conditional correlation of foreign exchange and excess equity returns. By using the proposed DCC model with exogenous variables, capital flows and interest rate differentials are shown to be significant factors in driving this conditional correlation. Furthermore, using this model it provides evidence of the dynamic behavior of global investors as they seek parity in equity returns between home and foreign markets to reduce exchange rate risks.
