This paper explains the dynamics of inter- and intra-day
return series of emerging stock markets in Asia by conducting
hypothesis tests, simulation while focusing on spillover and
overreaction effects before and after the 2008 financial crisis. The
results indicate a pattern specific to emerging markets in Asia; we
find that a positive performance of the U.S. market has a larger
effect on Asia markets than a negative one, which stands out from
general market behavior.
