  • Abstract 

    Under the framework of overshooting model and portfolio balance theory, this paper analyses the short-term spillover effect of Fedís QE on asset prices in China. Policy shocks "overall events" have a significant impact on China's financial market. China's debt full price index, Shanghai-Shenzhen 300 and Nan-Hua Futures Composite Index have increased significantly, while the "single event" issuance has no notable impact. Further research shows that the interest rate transmission mechanism has a striking impact on bonds, the exchange rate transmission mechanism has a remarkable impact on stocks, and the expected transmission mechanism has a notable impact on futures. China should comprehensively use interest rate, exchange rate and expected management tools to avoid the accumulation of financial bubbles.
