This paper examines daily open-to-close returns of major stock market indices on the New York Stock Exchange, Tokyo Stock Exchange and the London Stock Exchange over the 1985-1990 period, which encompasses the October 1987 Stock Market Crash. We estimate volatility spillover effects across the 24 hour day using a GARCH-M model. We find evidence that volatility spillover effects emanating from Japan have been gathering strength over time, especially after the 1987 Crash. This may reflect a growing awareness by domestic investors of the economic interdependence of international financial markets since the 1987 Stock Market Crash.
