The Empirical Study about the World Economy Synchronization using Returns Transitions between Stock Markets

This study is an empirical research of the stock markets to prove the synchronization phenomenon of the world economy. For this research I analyzed Korea`s KOSPI, USA`s DOW & NASDAQ reflecting stock markets in North America, Japan`s NIKKEI in Asia, and Germany`s DAX in Europe. Because the raw series are not stationary, they are to be transformed to returns series. The results of the study are follows: First of all, there are significant causalities between KOSPI`s returns and those of other indices. Second, feedback effects are found between the market returns with several time lags. Third, there are 4 cointegrating equations which embody the relation of the five returns series. And forth, KOSPI reacts more sensitively to impacts from the foreign indices compared to the other indices do when they got impacts from each other except KOSPI. On conclusion, there exists a clear evidence for the synchronization phenomenon in returns of the stock indices, and we can expect Korea market may get similar changes depending on the economic changes of North America, Europe, or Asia. Therefore more closing researches should be conducted about the world economy synchronization in various fields as soon as possible.
