Design/Methodology/Approach- To capture the behaviour of stock price and volatility in Indian commercial banks during the financial crisis, GARCH model has been used. Bankex index has been used with daily data of closing stock prices from January 1, 2004 to December 31, 2012.
Findings- The paper provides evidences of high persistence of volatility and significant negative association between stock prices and its volatility in both the sub periods.
Research Limitations- The paper is focused on Indian banking sector only, rest parts of the economy is excluded in this analysis.
Practical Implication- Dynamic changes in stock price behaviour during the financial crisis would help the investors, policy makers and academicians to predict stock return behaviour especially for the crashes.
