Time Varying International Market Integration

Dhouha Hadidane Chkioua


The objective of this paper is to test financial integration for a sample of 15 developed financial markets and 7 emerging markets between December 1987 and December 2004 by using Conditional International CAPM.

For emerging markets, we reject the hypothesis of integrated capital markets and we find evidence of time-varying segmentation.
