The Relation between crude oil prices and financial market indicators: a copula approach

Öztürk, Derya Ezgi
Oil prices have far reaching effects on the economy and financial markets since oil market is one of the most important markets in the world due to its crucial role of oil within economic activity. Although most of the economies are expected to be affected by the changes of oil prices, the magnitude of the effects may change from country to country. Oil-export/import dependent countries are expected to be more open to impacts arousing from changes in oil prices. Turkey, as a heavily oil importing country, is also expected to be affected by the changes in oil prices substantially. This study aims to explore the dependence structure between crude oil prices and exchange rates and stock market indices of several countries as well as Turkish financial market indicators in a detailed context using Copula approach. By covering a broad time period, the study aims to investigate the effect of global financial crisis on the mentioned dependence structure. Also, the study includes 1 to 30 days analysis to capture the variation of dependence day by day. For serving these aims, the time series data methods are used to filter the data and several copula measures are used to illustrate the level of the association. Findings of the study are expected to have important implications for portfolio management and financial risk management as well as monetary and fiscal policies.

Güneyligil, Ümmügülsüm; Akbostancı Özkazanç, Elif; Department of Economics (2013)
This study analyzes the effect of oil imports by OECD regions on crude oil price by using Kaufmann’s price rule as a benchmark. Using the autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) cointegration approach; it is found that there is cointegration between crude oil prices, days of forward consumption of OECD crude oil stocks, OPEC quota, OPEC cheat and key variables imported crude oil by OECD. However, ARDL based error correction models (ECM) indicate that regional factors are not a significant determinant of crude...

Oil price is a vital financial aspect directing the economy in the global world. Changes in the level of oil prices may affect the whole economy; at the same time economic developments may affect the oil prices.

Sharp decreases and increases in oil prices have been notable in recent years. These fluctuations ...
The Effects of exchange rates, oil prices, global risk perceptions and global warming on food prices
Dağdelen, Derya; Soytaş, Uğur; Department of Business Administration (2012)
This thesis examines the relationship between food prices, oil prices, carbon emission prices, exchange rates and global risk perception. To obtain the effects of these variables on the food prices, Toda and Yamamoto procedure is employed for 5-day week daily time series covering the period February 27, 2008 and March 21, 2011. The empirical results indicate that only volatility index Granger causes food prices. Furthermore, according to results of generalized impulse response plots food prices respond to a...

Keskin, Hakan; Mehmetoğlu, Mustafa Tanju; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2007)
Oil and natural gas are the most strategic raw materials to meet the expanding energy requirement in today’s world. They have great impact on issues such as economy, national security, development, competition, and political consistency. Being a developing country, Turkey’s natural gas requirement is increasing rapidly. However, the production is far from covering the demand. Recent assumptions point out that natural gas demand of Turkey will reach 44 billion cubic meters in 2010 with a financial burden of ...
