Research output: Contribution to journalResearch Articlepeer-review


This paper extends the literature on the relationship between oil price shocks and financial markets by examining the effect of supply and demand oil shocks on emerging energy markets, stocks of emerging markets, and gold and exploring the impact of unpredictable oil events on the degree of connectedness among these markets. We show that the effect of supply oil price disturbances drives volatility spillovers in emerging markets with prominent medium- and long-term effects, unlike demand oil price unanticipated changes, particularly during turbulent periods such as the 2008 subprime crisis, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the 2015 oil price crash. These volatility spillover effects are influenced by a marked relationship between supply oil disturbances and emerging energy markets. We also expose that the COVID-19 pandemic volatility spillover consequences in emerging markets are unprecedented compared to the 2008 financial crisis. This can be attributed to the different nature of the related oil price disturbances and financial crises. Overall, the findings highlight the role of crude oil supply shocks as drivers not only of volatility dynamics in energy and equity emerging markets but also of financial connectedness patterns in these economies
