by Scott R. Baker, Nicholas Bloom, Steven J. Davis, Marco Sammonvia VoxEu.org (Centre for Economic Policy Research)

Policy-driven jumps account for a greater share of upward than downward jumps in all countries. Jumps attributed to monetary policy foreshadow much lower levels of future stock market volatility than other jumps.
