In particular, we examine the impact across different countries and across different maturity buckets within individual countries. A comprehensive high-frequency dataset from MTS, Europe's premier electronic fixed-income trading market, is employed to construct a variety of microstructure liquidity and volatility measures. We analyze important trends in these measures over both tranquil and crisis periods. Additionally, we study time-varying correlations as well as the intertemporal interactions of liquidity proxies with volatility and returns. Our findings provide useful insights to regulators and policy makers on the relative strengths and weaknesses of domestic and global financial systems.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||World Scientific Publishing||Copyright (published version):||2018 World Scientific Publishing||Keywords:||Eurozone crisis;Financial contagion;Liquidity-volatility spillovers;Bond markets||DOI:||10.1142/10893||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Boubaker, S.
