    Abstract

    Time series models are widely used in economics today; especially the nonlinear models under the stationary and non-stationary frameworks for forecasting future patterns. This study sheds light on stock market performance between the Colombo stock exchange (CSE) and Nigeria stock exchange (NSE) from January 2007 to May 2013 under the comparative purposes. Miscellaneous types of statistical techniques were widely used. The study results clearly suggested that the price movement in CSE is more volatile than NSE.
