Abstract

The focus of this paper is to study the relationship between macroeconomic variables i.e. interbank money market (IBR), Consumer Price Index (CPI), Industrial Price Index (IPI), money supply(M2) and the performance of Malaysian Government Securities (MGS) with a view to finding out which variables are the leaders and which ones are the followers. The standard time series techniques are employed for the analysis. Malaysia is taken as a case study. The findings tend to indicate that the yield of Malaysian Government Securities (MGS) is mostly driven by the inflation rate (CPI) and money supply (M2) rather than Industrial production index (IPI) or Interbank money rate (IBR).These findings are plausible and contain strong policy implications for emerging economies like Malaysia.
