Abstract

This research makes an attempt to discuss the relationship between interest rate and Islamic stock market in Malaysia along with other theoretical determinants. We use vector error correction model and variance decompositions techniques including the recently developed long-run structural modeling (LRSM). Malaysia is used as a case study. The variables used in this research are monthly data of Crude oil price (OIL) , foreign exchange rates of Ringgit Malaysia- United States Dollar (MYR), Malaysian lending rate(INT) and Emas shariah index(EMASH). This research tends to indicate that in the short-term the interest rate does affect the Islamic product even though theoretically Islamic finance should not have any connection with the interest rate at all.
