There is increased interest in the dynamic relationships between the stock prices of clean energy and technology firms and oil prices in the literature. Existing works suggest a time-dependent link between them, but there is a gap of knowledge regarding the drivers of this time-dependent relationship. To contribute to this literature, we first identify dynamic conditional correlations (DCCs) between the prices of clean energy and technology stocks and oil prices to investigate the nature of these dynamic correlations. Our findings suggest the existence of significant asymmetric effects in the DCCs. Using the autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) model, we then investigate the impact of reserve currency (US dollar) value changes on the DCCs while also controlling for business cycles, monetary conditions, and financial stress. Our results highlight the dominant role of US dollar appreciations in driving the DCCs. This role intensifies when asymmetric impacts are taken into account The implications of this study are important for clean energy investments and for optimal risk management strategies in the energy and financial markets.

Asymmetric pass-through between oil prices and the stock prices of clean energy firms: New evidence from a nonlinear analysis
Kocaarslan, Baris; Soytaş, Uğur (2019-11-01)
There is an ongoing debate on how oil prices affect the stock prices of clean energy companies. We contribute to this debate by questioning the possibility of asymmetric linkages between oil prices, interest rates, and the stock prices of clean energy and technology firms. Using a recently developed approach (nonlinear auto-regressive distributed lag (NARDL) model), we document that ignoring the presence of nonlinearities leads to misleading results. The analyses reveal significant asymmetric effects among ...
Volatility Spillover from Oil to Food and Agricultural Raw Material Markets
Kaltalıoğlu, Müge; Soytaş, Uğur (2011-05-01)
The upward movement in oil and food prices in the 2000s has attracted interest in the information transmission mechanism between the two markets. This paper investigates the volatility spillover between oil, food consumption item, and agricultural raw material price indexes for the period January 1980 to April 2008.The results of the Cheung-Ng procedure show that variation in oil prices does not Granger cause the variance in food and agricultural raw material prices. Since there is no volatility spillover f...
The Relationship Between Energy Commodity Prices and Electricity and Market Index Performances: Evidence from an Emerging Market
Ordu, Beyza Mina; Soytaş, Uğur (2016-01-01)
We investigate the effect of energy commodity price movements on market and electricity index returns in Turkey for the periods before, during, and after the year 2008. Although the Turkish economy is highly reliant on oil, we find that oil price does not lead either electricity or market indexes. This might be attributable to sluggish integration of financial markets in Turkey compared to developed markets. Natural gas price leads electricity index in the pre-2008 period. Its significance is reduced follow...
Dynamic correlations between BRIC and U.S. stock markets: The asymmetric impact of volatility expectations in oil, gold and financial markets
Kocaarslan, BARIŞ; Sarı, Ramazan; GORMUS, Alper; Soytaş, Uğur (2017-09-01)
This study investigates the impacts of volatility expectations in oil, gold, currency and the U.S. stock markets on time-varying conditional correlations between BRIC and U.S. stock markets. We use asymmetric dynamic conditional correlation and dynamic conditional correlation models to derive the time-varying relationships. We then examine the dynamic conditional correlations using quantile regressions for a detailed analysis of dependence structure containing non-linear and asymmetric interactions. Our res...
Hydro-Optimization-Based Medium-Term Price Forecasting Considering Demand and Supply Uncertainty
İLSEVEN, Engin; Göl, Murat (2018-07-01)
This paper proposes an electricity market model of Turkish electricity market for monthly and yearly electricity price forecasting in medium-term by means of supply and demand dynamics formed via a theoretical approach. The electricity market model created within this scope consists of three main components related to electricity demand, supply, and price segments along with hydro optimization submodel, which takes into account the nonlinear relation between supply and price. Electricity price is determined...
