This study empirically investigates the long-run equilibrium among Stock, Bond, Commodity, and Currency markets in India based on weekly data for the most recent period 20002012. To obtain more detailed results and particularly the assessment of effects of the global financial crisis of 2008, the period was divided to three sub-periods comprising 20002007, 2008, and 20092012. The research methodology used for the purpose includes testing the stationary nature of data with the Dickey Fuller test, optimal lag selection by using VAR Lag Order Selection Criterion, and co-integration test according to Johansen approach. This study suggests that while there has been no integration during the whole period of 20002012, there have been a slight, a strong and no integrations during 20002007, 2008, and 20092012 sub-periods respectively. The finding in this study is consistent with the phenomenon of flight to quality which implies that the economic turmoil leads to an increase in the relationship among economic variables.
