Business-cycle Fluctuations and International Equity Correlations

We study the link between international monthly equity correlations and the comovement of business-cycle fluctuations in seven major countries over the period 1970–2004. In order to measure international equity correlations, we estimated bivariate GARCH models featuring time-varying conditional correlations. To assess the robustness of our results, we analyzed different GARCH models and used different measures of business-cycle fluctuations.
