Abstract

This paper applies the multi-scale beta estimation approach based on wavelet analysis to all stocks comprising BSE-Sensex. Betas are calculated based on the wavelet decomposition from the Maximal overlap discrete wavelet transform (DWT). It is shown that the multi-scale beta estimation approach is useful in certain cases.
