Abstract: This study examines the pattern of returns and volatility on United States and United Kingdom stock markets before and after the current financial crisis. GARCH, GARCH in mean (GARCH-M), threshold GARCH (TGARCH) and exponential GARCH (EGARCH) models are applied on daily data of Dow-Jones and FTSE-100 from July 2004 to April 2009. The results present the best fit model for each market for the pre-crisis, post-crisis and entire period since the July 2007 is thought to be the beginning of the crisis. The findings also provide a view of the crisis effects on the markets’ fundamentals and on the investors’ behaviour.
