This study uses a Structural Vector Auto Regression (SVAR) method and focuses on Impulse Response Function (IRF) and Error Variance Decomposition (EVD). Findings: The results of the study show that 1. Contagion effect exists on composite index of global stocks. 2. The most influential indexes on others are DJIA, KLCI, FTSE, SCI. 3.
