Therecent bouts of crises in the Europe and the US have spurred increasinginterest on the co-movement of output and stock market across the Europeancountries. The evidence of such co-movements is rooted mainly from thespillover of uncertainty among the European countries. Hence, using a newuncertainty index from Baker et al. 1,we investigate both the time-varying as well as frequency based co-movement ofuncertainty in the selected European countries. Our results suggest both timeand frequency varying co-movement of the uncertainty indices. In particular, theseco-movements are found to be more pronounced during the crises periods.
