Indian and Chinese Metal Futures Markets: A Linkage Analysis

Indian and Chinese Metal Futures Markets: A Linkage Analysis AbstractThis paper aims to test the long-run and short-run relationships between the Indian and Chinese metal futures markets using the weekly closing prices of three nonferrous metals, that is, copper, aluminium, and zinc, for the period of 2009–2020. The empirical results show no cointegration for any of the three metals. The Granger causality test suggests a unidirectional relationship from India to China for copper futures and bidirectional causality for aluminium and zinc futures markets. This paper contributes to the literature by studying the relationship between the mentioned two emerging markets, which are top producers and consumers in commodities and have growing futures markets. The results have important implications for investors, portfolio makers, and policymakers of emerging economies. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Acta Universitatis Sapientiae, Economics and Business de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractThis paper aims to test the long-run and short-run relationships between the Indian and Chinese metal futures markets using the weekly closing prices of three nonferrous metals, that is, copper, aluminium, and zinc, for the period of 2009–2020. The empirical results show no cointegration for any of the three metals. The Granger causality test suggests a unidirectional relationship from India to China for copper futures and bidirectional causality for aluminium and zinc futures markets. This paper contributes to the literature by studying the relationship between the mentioned two emerging markets, which are top producers and consumers in commodities and have growing futures markets. The results have important implications for investors, portfolio makers, and policymakers of emerging economies.
