Abstract [en]

We apply the three-dimensional analysis of wavelet coherency to examine the

integration of 22 emerging stock markets with the U.S. market.

We find a high degree

of co-movement at relatively lower frequencies between the U.S. and the 22 individual

emerging markets.

Our results show that t

he strength of co-movement, however, differs

by country. For example, we report a high degree of co-movement between the U.S. and

Brazil, Mexico and Korea, but low co-movement with and Egypt and Morocco. Our

analyses also document a general change in the pattern of the market relationship after

2006, where we detect co-movements at relatively higher frequencies. Co-movement at

the highest frequencies is, however, weak for fluctuations with duration less than a year.

Our findings imply that investing selectively in emerging markets may provide

significant diversification benefits which, invariably, depend on the investment horizon.
