Spatial contagion between financial markets: a copula-based approach

Authors


Abstract

A method is proposed for defining and investigating spatial contagion between two financial markets X and Y by using the information contained in their copula. A practical illustration of the introduced method is also given by examining the presence of contagion among two European stock indices (namely, FTSE 100 and DAX).
