Under the assumption that investors’ reactions to positive and negative shocks are not same, this relationship was investigated with time varying asymmetrical causality analysis. Through this analysis, it is aimed to obtain more effective results about whether causality relationships are consistent, or not. The practice in the research was done with 124 monthly data sets involving June 2015 and September 2015. The obtained findings support existence of a consistent causality relationship for negative shocks from Istanbul Stock Exchange towards foreign portfolio investments.
