Prices on electricity and the prices on stocks : -A Vector autoregressive approach
Sammanfattning: This study will investigate if a relationship exists between the price of electricity and the Swedish stock market. This study will also try to investigate what consequences an increase in the price of electricity will have on the return of the Swedish stock market. Economic theory and earlier literature will then be used to try to explain the results obtained in this study. The results from the tests performed in this study imply that a one-way Granger-causality exists between the prices on electricity and the price on the OMX 30. The impulse response functions performed shows that a positive shock in the price on electricity will predict an increase in the return of the OMX 30 in the short run. This effect may come from the existence of a countercyclical risk premium. Although further research needs to be performed to conclude that this is the true reason for the observed result.
