Investigating Short-Term Dynamics in Green Bond Markets

October 27, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Speaker: Prof. Lorenzo Mercuri, Dept. of Economics, Management & Quantitative Finance Methods, University of Milan

Abstract: The paper investigates the effect of the label green in bond markets from the lens of the trading activity. The idea is that jumps in the dynamics of returns have a specific memory nature that can be well represented through a self-exciting process. Specifically, using Hawkes processes where the intensity is described through a continuous time moving average model, we study the high frequency dynamics of bond prices. We also introduce a bivariate extension of the model that deals with the cross-effect of upward and downward price movements. Empirical results suggest that differences emerge if we consider periods with relevant interest rate announcements, especially in the case of an issuer operating in the energy market.
