Description This paper examines the relationship between the Czech Republic’s stock market and stock markets of its major trading partners. Johansen multivariate cointegration technique is used for the analysis of short- and long-run linkages between those markets. The purpose of the paper is twofold. First, it aims to test whether the degree of integration on the equity markets is comparable to the degree of economic integration. Furthermore, this paper is goaled to distinguish the change in interdependence relationships between Czech stock market and stock markets of its trading partners after the world financial crisis. Vector Error Correction Model is built to determine the initial receptor of internal shocks, while Granger causality tests are performed to form the short-run connections. The findings on notable change in stock markets’ cointegration have implications for both policy makers and global investors.
