  • Abstract

    This paper aims to investigate the inter-dependence of exchange rate and stock index from Japan. For this purpose, we use a dynamic conditional correlation (DCC) model into a multivariate Fractionally Integrated Exponential GARCH (FIGARCH). Framework takes account long memory and time varying correlations. Our findings reveal time-varying Co-movements evidence, a high persistence of conditional correlation and dynamic correlations revolve around a constant level. The findings support the idea of cross-market hedging and sharing of common information by investors.
