A Network-Based Approach to Study Returns Synchronization of Stocks: The Case of Global Equity Markets

This work measures and estimates the effect of global synchronization on the world equity markets of North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia, and Oceania between July 2001 and April 2020 and finds that its measure of global stock synchronization is dynamic over time, its minimums coincide with significant financial shocks, and it shrinks to its minimum levels, indicating that the returns of global markets are moving in a synchronized way.
