Export pricing and the cross-country correlation of stock prices
Abstract: This study analyses cross-country correlations of stock
prices (values of firms) using the basic New Open Economy Macroeconomics
model. We show that cross-country correlations of stock prices greatly
depend on the currency of export pricing in the case of monetary shocks but
not notably for temporary technology shocks. In the case of a money supply
shock, the producer (local) currency pricing version of the model generates
a negative (positive) cross-country correlation of stock prices.
