This study is set up to investigate how returns on three groups (developed, emerging and frontier) of global stock markets respond to shock to investment opportunities in the United States using aggregate Tobin’s q as a proxy. The Granger-causality is computed to determine the causal linkage between the investment opportunities in the United States and returns on the global stock market. The generalized impulse response functions and variance decomposition are also estimated.
