Empirical research on European stock markets has shown that they behave differently according to the performance of the leading financial market identified as the US market. A positive sign is viewed as good news in the international financial markets, a negative sign means, conversely, bad news. As a result, we assume that European stock market returns are affected by endogenous and exogenous shocks. The former raise in the market itself, the latter come from the US market, because of its most influential role in the world. Under standard assumptions, the distribution of the European market index returns conditionally on the sign of the one-day lagged US return is skew-normal. The resulting model is denoted Skew-GARCH. We study the properties of this new model and illustrate its application to time-series data from three European financial markets.
