Abstract: This paper investigates the role of influential stocks in shaping the emergent system-level interdependence in global stock markets using a large set of stocks selected from major stock market indices from across the globe. We have proposed a method to identify influential stocks using various centrality measures used in social network analysis literature. Our study shows how these influential stocks provide key linkages in integrating the global stock markets as an interconnected system. We have also shown that the regional influence dominates over the economic sector influence in shaping the topological structure of stock market network. The study also captures the change in the topology of this network following the collapse of Lehman Brothers. © 2011 IEEE.
