Influence of Terrorist Acts on the Dynamics of World Stock Markets: Situational Analysis
Economics
(Bachelor’s programme)
8
2018
Despite the efforts of law enforcement agencies of the world's leading countries, the influence of radical movements has become much stronger in last decades. Terrorist acts lead to a sharp destabilization in the country especially in its economy. Although the number of terrorist acts is growing, their impact on the financial markets is still barely studied. That is why the aim of this work is to define the general nature of the impact of terrorist attacks on world stock markets. For this purpose, the authors use data for nineteen countries for the period from 1988 to May 2017. The situational analysis, which is based on this data, made it possible to identify the main trends in the impact of terrorist attacks on the dynamics of market indices in developed and developing countries, and also to describe Russian specifics. The conclusions of this work can be useful to market agents as well as to the organizers of trades and regulators, for the formation of timely and correct measures to stabilize the financial system in such situations.
