Abstract:

This paper presents a set of stylized empiricaI facts resulted from the statistical investigation of the daily and monthly price variations of European stock market indices during the period April 2007 - March 2012. We study 21 regional and global stock market indices calculated by MSCI Barra, divided into three categories: mature, emerging and frontier markets. Our analysis confirms most of the stylized facts introduced by Cont (2001) but finds that frontier markets showed less vo/ati/ity than emerging and developed markets and that monthly squared returns presented less evidence of autocorrelations in comparison with the daily squared returns.
