Abstract

This study evaluates the use of futures contracts for precious metals to hedge against stock market risks and their hedging effectiveness on the Indonesian Stock Exchange (IDX) and the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange (KLSE). This study found that gold was the most effective hedging instrument, since it produced the highest hedging effectiveness both on the IDX and the KLSE among the other precious metals. None of the hedged portfolios had a higher Sharpe’s ratio than the unhedged one on the IDX; however, all the hedged portfolios on the KLSE had a higher Sharpe’s ratio than the unhedged ones. Almost all the hedged portfolios could produce a higher Treynor’s ratio than the unhedged portfolios, both on the IDX and the KLSE. In general, this study concluded that studying some precious metals could reduce the investment risk, which was shown through the variance produced by the smaller portfolios, while gold can improve the risk-adjusted performance.

Abstract

This study scrutinizes the potency of gold and bonds as safe haven assets for the Indonesian and Malaysian capital markets, because some previous studies have been undertaken in established market settings. The research period for this study was from June 2008 to September 2016. The quantile regression technique was used to analyze the data. The results of this study indicated that gold did not have a role as a safe haven for the Indonesian capital market, but did have a role as the safe haven for the Malaysian capital market. This study also found that Indonesian government bonds, Malaysian government bonds, and Malaysian corporate bonds could not act as safe haven assets. In contrast, corporate bonds in Indonesia had the potency to perform the function of a safe haven for stocks on the Indonesian Stock Exchange.
