Bridget Opoku-Agyemang, Grace Ofori-Abebrese, Benjamin Korankye


Abstract: In this study, we investigate the impact of interest rate on stock prices in Ghana by employing OLS model with monthly data spanning from January, 2000 to September, 2010. To prove our concept, we used Granger causality to test the direction and the causality between interest rate and stock prices in the context of Ghana. The test results show that there is unidirectional causality between interest rate and stock price. This means that changes in the stock price explains the variations in the interest rate. The empirical results indicated that interest rate definitely has negative effect on stock price in Ghana. The outcome also indicated unidirectional causality between interest rate and stock price.
