Abstract

We investigate volatility spillovers between two stock markets: Turkey and Bra-
zil. Using a misspecification-robust causality-in-variance test, we find evidence supporting
volatility spillovers from the São Paulo Stock Exchange to the Istanbul Stock Exchange.
Moreover, the results imply that financial crises may change the nature of volatility spill-
overs between the two markets by adding an additional channel of volatility transmission
from Turkey to Brazil.
