1. | Although there is in fact a wealth of literature regarding TVP-VAR models (see, inter alia, Primiceri 2005; Cogley and Sargent 2005; Koop and Korobilis 2013, 2014; Del Negro and Primiceri 2015; Petrova 2019) we do not focus on the TVP-VAR framework specifically, but we are rather concerned with utilising the TVP-VAR framework in order to improve the accuracy of the dynamic connectedness measures. |

2. | Both the code for Monte Carlo simulation and the results of different rolling-windows are available upon request. |

**Figure 5.**Dynamic total connectedness. the darker the series, the smaller the window size, and vice versa (25, 26, …, 274, 275).
