Apples and oranges: the difference between the reaction of the emerging and mature markets to crashes

Sharkasi, Adel, Crane, Martin orcid logoORCID: 0000-0001-7598-3126 and Ruskin, Heather J. orcid logoORCID: 0000-0001-7101-2242 (2006) Apples and oranges: the difference between the reaction of the emerging and mature markets to crashes. In: Proceedings of 3rd Nikkei Econophysics Symposium - Practical Fruits of Econophysics, November 2004, Tokyo, Japan. ISBN 978-4-431-28914-2

We study here the behavior of the eigenvalues of the covariance matrices of returns for emerging and mature markets at times of crises. Our results appear to indicate that mature markets respond to crashes differently to emerging ones and that emerging markets take longer to recover than mature markets. In addition, the results appear to indicate that the second largest eigenvalue gives additional information on market movement and that a study of the behavior of the other eigenvalues may provide insight on crash dynamics.
