The asymmetries in Implied Volatility (IV) indices of selected countries are examined using Engle and Ng (1993) test. The spillovers and transmission are examined in multivariate-GARCH framework using BEKK and DCC model. The analysis is done using weekly data for period spanning from Nov, 2007 to Oct, 2011 March. The main findings of study document asymmetries in the IV indices exist for the Indian, American and French markets.
