This study examines the cointegration relationship between the S&P 500 and other major stock market indices before, during and after the 2007-2009 financial crisis. This paper examines the S&P 500 and its cointegration relationship with the following indices: Hang Seng, FTSE 100, DAX, Nikkei 225, CAC 40, IPC, TSX 60 and Merval Buenos Aires. The augmented Dickey-Fuller test (ADF) is used to test the cointegration between the major stock market indices. It is found that the majority of the indices were cointegrated with the S&P 500 before and during the crisis and were not cointegrated after the crisis.
