Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues:

Applying multifractal approaches in order to investigate the complex dynamics of financial markets offers several advantages due to the unique characteristics of financial data. Specifically, multifractal analysis enables the capture of intricate and self-similar patterns often exhibited by the financial time series. The primary purpose of this Special Issue is to apply multifractal approaches in order to provide novel relevant insights for stakeholders and offer possible future research directions in this field.

Topics of interests: Relevant contributions that promote the application multifractal approaches in order to investigate financial market dynamics. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Cross-market analysis;
  • High-frequency data analysis;
  • Market efficiency;
  • Market volatility analysis;
  • Multiscale volatility analysis;
  • Risk management.

Geopolitical risks and conflicts wield substantial influence on the global economy and financial markets, fostering uncertainty and volatility. This study investigates the intricate relationship between gold and representatives of green and sustainable stocks in the US and EU during the Russia-Ukraine conflict, employing multifractal detrended cross-correlation analysis (MF-DCCA) and nonlinear Granger causality. MF-DCCA reveals significant multifractal properties and nonlinear cross-correlations across all time series pairs. Notably, conflict weakened the multifractal cross-correlations between US stocks and gold, except for the TESLA/gold pair. A similar significant change in the EU market’s multifractal properties was observed during the conflict. In conjunction with MF-DCCA, Granger causality tests indicate bidirectional nonlinear relationships between gold and green/sustainable stock markets in the USA and EU. Gold’s past movements significantly influence changes in all the considered green and sustainable stocks, enabling predictions of their behavior. These findings shed light on multifractal dynamics during geopolitical crises and emphasize the bidirectional relationships between gold and green and sustainable stock markets. This comprehensive analysis informs investors and policy makers, enhancing their understanding of financial market behavior amid geopolitical instability. Full article
