Volatility transmission in the UK equity market

Patricia L. Chelley-Steeley, James M. Steeley

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We provide evidence of the nature of the transmission of volatility within the UK stock market. We find a distinct asymmetry in that shocks to the return volatility of a portfolio of relatively large firms influence the future volatility of a portfolio of relatively small firms, but find that the reverse is not the case. The characteristics of the volatility process suggest that this result is not caused by thin trading.
