The traditional linear Granger test has been widely used to examine the linear causality among several time series in bivariate settings as well as multivariate settings. Hiemstra and Jones [19] develop a nonlinear Granger causality test in bivariate settings to investigate the nonlinear causality between stock prices and trading volume. This paper extends their work by developing a nonlinear causality test in multivariate settings.
