  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Rizvi, Syed Aun Raza; Dewandaru, Ginanjar; Bacha, Obiyathulla Ismath; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2014)

  • An efficient market has been theoretically proven to be a key component for effective and efficient resource allocation in an economy. This paper incorporates econophysics with Efficient Market Hypothesis to undertake a comparative analysis of Islamic and developed countries’ markets by extending the understanding of their multifractal nature. By applying the Multifractal Detrended Fluctuation Analysis (MFDFA) we calculated the generalized Hurst exponents, multifractal scaling exponents and generalized multifractal dimensions for 22 broad market indices. The findings provide a deeper understanding of the markets in Islamic countries, where they have traces of highly efficient performa...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur; Ryan, Vicky (2010)

  • This paper aims to examine the relationship between the rate of interest on the key instrument of monetary policy in Australia, the overnight cash rate and the debt instruments comprising the Australian Government Yield curve, during the climate of low inflation and transparent monetary policy in Australia since the early 1990s. This relationship is fitted to an Expectations Theory based function. The methods applied are the error-correction and variance decompositions techniques including the most recently developed ‘long run structural modelling’ (Pesaran and Shin, 2002). The findings indicate that, contrary to common belief, longer-term interest rates more often than not tend to le...

  • The derivatives markets in the Asian region have shown significant growth and development since their inception. Similarly, derivatives market in Malaysia and Bursa Malaysia Derivatives have experienced remarkable changes and developments. This study focuses mainly on the stock index futures contract (FKLI) and its relationship with the underlying spot index (FBM KLCI). The FKLI is chosen instead of other permissible futures due to availability of the data and its relevance in the context of fund managers' asset allocation strategy...

  • An_analysis_of_option_pricing_under_systematic_consumption_risk_using_GARCH_mansur.pdf.jpg
  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Georgievski, Alex; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2004)

  • An issue in the pricing of contingent claims is whether to account for consumption risk. This is relevant for contingent claims on stock indices, such as the FTSE 100 share price index, as investor's desire for smooth consumption is often used to explain risk premiums on stock market portfolios, but is not used to explain risk premiums on contingent claims themselves. This paper addresses this fundamental question by allowing for consumption in an economy to be correlated with returns. Daily data on the FTSE 100 share price index are used to compare three option pricing models: the Black-Scholes option pricing model, a GARCH (1, 1) model priced under a risk-neutral framework, and aGAR...

  • This study attempts to investigate the issue of integration of Islamic equity markets (i) not only whether these markets are moving together or not (ii) but also whether the permanent and temporary components of these markets are moving together or not. Our evidence tends to indicate that these selected Islamic markets are bound together by one cointegrating relationship with the Euro zone Islamic equity market being the most leading one and the U.K. Islamic equity market being the follower. Beveridge-Nelson (BN) time series decomposition analysis reinforces the integration by indicating that both the permanent and transitory components of all these Islamic equity indices tend to move...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur; Farouk, Faizal (2016-05-10)

  • This paper is the first attempt to investigate the multiscale tendency of the co-movement and cross-correlation of nine Islamic Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) returns across the global developed and emerging markets using both wavelet coherence and wavelet MODWT methods. The wavelet coherence results tend to indicate consistent co movement between most of the ETF returns especially in the long run. The study also uncovers evidence of wide variation of co-movement across the time-scales during the global financial crisis and the Euro debt crisis. Strong co-movement can be observed during the global financialcrisis, both for the medium term investors and long term investors. The paper studi...

  • This paper is an attempt at re-examining the question of causality between money and prices both in the bivariate and multivariate context of a small developing economy, based on an improved methodology. Pakistan is used as a case study. The study tends to suggest rather strongly that in the case of Pakistan during the period under consideration (1970/71 to 1993/94), contrary to earlier findings, it was price that was the leading variable as the structuralist maintain and not the other way around as the monetarist maintain

  • This article makes an attempt to test the possible directions of causality between financial development and economic growth, which were labelled by Patrick (1966) as the supply-leading and demand-following hypothesis. Saudi Arabia is taken as a case study. The methods applied are the error correction and variance decompositions techniques including the most recently developed ‘long-run structural modelling (LRSM)’ (Pesaran and Shin, 2002), which by imposing exactly identifying and overidentifying restrictions on the cointegrating vector has taken care of a major limitation of the conventional cointegrating estimates in that they were atheoretical in nature.

  • This study constructs active Islamic portfolios using a multi-style rotation strategy, derived from the three prominent styles, namely, momentum, value, and quality investing. We use the stocks that are consistently listed in the U.S. Dow Jones Islamic index for a sample period from 1996 to 2012. We also include two macroeconomic mimicking portfolios to capture the premiums of industrial production growth and inflation innovation, accommodating the economic regime shifts. Based on the information coefficients, we find the six-month momentum and the fractal measure as momentum factors; the enterprise yield (gross profit/TEV) and the book to market ratio as valuation factors; the gross ...

  • Journal Article


  • Authors: Masih, Rumi; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2004)

  • Given the impact of the October 1987 crash pre-empting fears of a deep-seated financial collapse, there is now much scope for assessing its importance quantitatively. In this paper, time series techniques are used to analyse the dynamic linkages and propagation of shocks among five European stock markets. While we do not find any long-run relationship of stock markets over the entire sample ped, evidence is found in support of a unique cointegrating vector over each of the pre- and post-crash samples. Furthermore, the dynamic analysis reveals that the lead-lag relationships changed quite significantly over the sample following the crash.

  • The patterns of dynamic linkages are examined among national stock prices of four Asian Newly Industrializing Countries stock markets - Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong - in models incorporating the established markets of Japan, USA, UK and Germany. Recent time-series techniques are employed, including unit root testing, multivariate cointegration, vector error-correction modelling (VECM), forecast error variance decomposition (VDC) and impulse response functions (IRFs). The results consistently appear to suggest the relatively leading role of all established markets in driving fluctuations in the NIC stock markets. In other words, all established markets and Hong Kong, co...

  • Authors: Dewandaru, Ginanjar; Masih, Rumi; Mohammed Masih, Abul Mansur (2016)

  • Our study attempts to discover contagion amongst the Asia-Pacific equity markets (Japan, Hong Kong and Australia) during twelve major crises around the world. We apply both discrete and continuous wavelet decompositions to unveil the multi-horizon nature of co-movement and lead–lag relationship. We find that shocks were transmitted via excessive linkages, with the Asian crisis as the most influential in relation to a sudden stop. We also find that the subprime crisis revealed fundamentals-based contagion, due to the strengthening fundamental linkages, with a dominant role of the Japanese market. Finally, we find low co-movements in the short run, suggesting a partial convergence acros...

The authors have investigated time invariant, dynamic correlations at different investments horizons of the investors among Islamic asset classes by applying relevant econometric techniques like multivariate generalized autoregressive conditional heteroscedastic - DCC and continuous wavelet transforms.

  • The East Asian financial crisis indicated that one of the factors that played a critical role in affecting the exchange rate of a country was its current account balance. This paper attempts to investigate this hypothesis. The Singaporean dollar (SD) and the Malaysian ringgit (RM) against the yen are taken as case studies. Our analysis is based on the recent cointegration method and we examine two issues. First, whether the exchange rates are cointegrated with the fundamentals as predicted by economic theory. Our focus was to investigate whether the exchange rate movements are affected by the economic fundamentals, particularly the current account balance. Our findings suggest that t...

  • The last decade has witnessed a rapid expansion of Islamic financial instruments with a notable proliferation of Islamic investment certificates called sukuk. In spite of the expansion, research to appraise their growth implications remains limited. This paper investigated the structural differences within sukuk and conventional and their implications on investor return reactions. It also looked at the investors' different decision making time horizon dimensions in response to the respective debt security's announcement. Our sample consisted of 158 conventional bonds and 129 sukuk issuers between 2000 and 2013. Event-study methodology and wavelet analysis were used resulting in three ...
