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 from oil markets to food andagricultural raw material markets, investors can benefit from risk diversification. However, there is bi-directional spillover between agricultural raw material and food markets.

World oil prices and agricultural commodity prices: Evidence from an emerging market
NAZLIOĞLU, ŞABAN; Soytaş, Uğur (2011-05-01)
Oil prices are thought to have direct effect on agricultural prices followed by an indirect effect through the exchange rate. This paper examines the short- and long-run interdependence between world oil prices, lira-dollar exchange rate, and individual agricultural commodity prices (wheat, maize, cotton, soybeans, and sunflower) in Turkey. To this end, the Toda-Yamamoto causality approach and generalized impulse-response analysis for identification of the long- and short-run interrelationships are applied ...
Price transmissions between food and oil

Dynamic correlations between oil prices and the stock prices of clean energy and technology firms: The role of reserve currency (US dollar)
KOCAARSLAN, BARIŞ; Soytaş, Uğur (2019-10-01)
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 co...
Exchange rate pass through into the export and import prices of Turkey
Abalı, Elif Ege; Akbostancı Özkazanç, Elif; Department of Economics (2004)
In this study, exchange rate pass-through into the export prices and import prices is analyzed separately at the disaggregate level. The study also attempts to differentiate exchange rate pass-through in the short-run and long-run. To analyze pass-through in the short-run, dynamic modeling is used. To analyze pass-through in the long-run, cointegration analysis is conducted. Estimation results show that exchange rate pass-through into the import prices is complete even at the disaggregate level. However, th...
Volatility spillover from world oil spot markets to aggregate and electricity stock index returns in Turkey
Soytaş, Uğur; Oran, Adil (2011-01-01)
This study examines the inter-temporal links between world oil prices, ISE 100 and ISE electricity index returns unadjusted and adjusted for market effects. The traditional approaches could not detect a causal relationship running from oil returns to any of the stock returns. However, when we examine the causality using Cheung-Ng approach we discover that world oil prices Granger cause electricity index and adjusted electricity index returns in variance, but not the aggregate market index returns. Hence, ou...
