This study employs a parametric approach based on TGARCH and GARCH models to estimate the VaR of the copper futures market and spot market in China. Considering the short selling mechanism in the futures market, the paper introduces two new notions: upside VaR and extreme upside risk spillover. And downside VaR and upside VaR are examined by using the above approach. Also, we use Kupiec’s [P.H. Kupiec, Techniques for verifying the accuracy of risk measurement models, Journal of Derivatives 3 (1995) 73–84] backtest to test the power of our approaches. In addition, we investigate information spillover effects between the futures market and the spot market by employing a linear Granger causality test, and Granger causality tests in mean, volatility and risk respectively. Moreover, we also investigate the relationship between the futures market and the spot market by using a test based on a kernel function. Empirical results indicate that there exist significant two-way spillovers between the futures market and the spot market, and the spillovers from the futures market to the spot market are much more striking.
China’s futures market has experienced volatile fluctuations since its emergence during the late 1980s, bringing a great deal of uncertainties and risks to market participants. As a result, the futures market efficiency and the relationship between the futures market and the spot market have been major concerns for the supervision authorities and investors. A large volume of study has been done on the relationship between the futures market and the spot market. Garbade and Silber  present a model for examining the price discovery role of futures prices and the effect of arbitrage on price changes in spot and the futures commodity markets. Haigh  use cointegration analysis to study the relationship between the prices of the futures market and the spot market. According to previous studies, for most futures products, there exists a cointegrating relationship between the prices of the futures market and the spot market. Hasbrouck  defines price discovery in terms of the variance of the innovations to the common factor, based on which the futures and the spot markets’ relative contributions to this variance can be examined. Tse  investigates the minute-by-minute price discovery process and volatility spillovers between the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) index and the index futures. Tse and So  use data from Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index, Hang Seng Index futures and the Tracker Fund to examine price discovery function of the Hang Seng Index market via the Hasbrouck–Gonzalo and Granger information sharing techniques and the Multivariate Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (M-GARCH) model. Empirical evidence shows that the movements of the three markets are interrelated and they have different degrees of information processing abilities. In the Chinese future markets literature, Hua and Zhong  study the price discovery in the Chinese futures market using the Garbade and Silber  model. Tong  and Ma  investigate price discovery in the Mainland Chinese futures market. Hua and Zhong  use cointegration analysis to study the relationship between the futures price and spot price for copper and aluminum traded at SHFE (Shanghai Futures Exchange). Gao  studies the relationship between soybean futures price and spot price as well as the relationship between SHFE copper price and LME (London Metal Exchange) copper price. Pan et al.  study the risk contagion between Chinese oil market and overseas oil markets. It is obvious that study on the relationship between the futures market and the spot market concentrates mainly on price discovery, and little research has been done on the information spillover, especially the risk spillover, between the two markets. To fill in this gap, this paper will examine the information spillovers between the futures market and spot market in China. We employ the methods developed by Hong  and Hong, Liu and Wang  and use their tests based on the kernel function to investigate the relationship between the futures market and the spot market for the first time. The kernel weight function ensures good power of the test method for using many lags, and Granger causality can be tested across a wide range of alternative hypotheses. Given the short selling mechanism in the futures market, we examine the risks for long and short positions separately. Considering the rising price tendency in the copper market after 2004, we firstly introduce the notions of upside VaR and extreme upside risk spillover. Specifically, we study the VaR of the Chinese copper futures market and spot market by applying a parametric approach based on TGARCH and GARCH models. In addition, we investigate information spillovers between the futures market and the spot market by employing a linear Granger causality test, and Granger causality tests in mean, volatility and risk respectively. The remainder of the paper is organized as follows: Section 2 introduces a VaR model, the notion of Granger causality and the methodology of various Granger causality tests. Section 3 gives a description of the variables used in the study and the descriptive statistics of their data series. Then estimation and empirical results are presented in Section 4. Finally, Section 5 summarizes and concludes the paper.

This study quantifies the potential risk in the Chinese copper market by applying a parametric approach based on GARCH-type models. Also, we study the information and risk spillover between the copper futures market and the copper spot market. The main findings are: First, although the trading mechanism in the futures market is symmetric, the impacts of good news and bad news on the market volatility are asymmetric. The market’s reactions to good news are stronger than those to bad news. Second, the downside VaR estimation and the upside VaR estimation pass backtests at conventional significance levels, suggesting the adequacy of the estimated VaR models. Third, we find that the prices of the copper futures market and cooper spot market change in the same direction, and the variation ranges are very close. This indicates that the two markets share the same long run tendency and investment funds have flexible two-way liquidity between the two markets. Obviously, investors in the two markets have similar strategies and risk attitudes and their reactions to new information tend to be similar. Fourth, significant conditional heteroskedasticity and volatility clustering are found in both futures and spot return series, which can be fitted adequately by a GARCH-type model. Moreover, there exists two-way Granger causality between the copper futures market and spot market, and information and risk spillovers from the futures market to the spot market are much stronger, showing the dominant role that the futures market plays in terms of information spillover. Empirical results suggest that a test statistic based on the kernel function gives better power than the F-test statistic based on regressions. In summary, the empirical results suggest that accurate estimation of the risk in China’s futures market can be realized by employing appropriate econometric models. And as there is an interactive relationship between the risk in the futures market and the risk in the spot market, it is important to strengthen the supervision and regulation over the futures market, introduce more futures contracts, and enforce market rules. In addition, further enhancing the development of the futures market in emerging markets like China can help ensure the stability and efficient resource allocation of the spot market as the futures price can help “regulate” supply and demand in advance.
