Results of the Johansen’s Co-integration indicate that there is long-run equilibrium relationship between gold price and stock returns. Further, the Granger causality test results indicate that there is no causal relation between gold and stock return and finally the impulse response functions show that the gold and the response of the stock return is positive at each time responsive period and it can be said that the response of both the variables has a smooth fluctuation in upcoming 10th period.
