“In global world the investment in capital market plays a vital role of an economy especially in emerging countries”. The researcher found the influences of three independent economic variables i.e., foreign exchange, foreign direct investment and inflation (CPI) at SAARC countries and China and comparison of these results into two groups with high frequency monthly data of all dependent and independent variables, since last five years practice data obtain from various authentic sources. To reach these research objectives author uses the ordinary least square (OLS) to estimate the Pearson's correlation coefficient and multiple regression models. And results show that in first group, significant (positive) influences by foreign exchange & inflation while FDI has insignificant (negative) influences on stock market return in Bangladesh. And in Pakistan, foreign exchange and inflation have significant (negative) influences while FDI has insignificant (positive) influences on stock market return. In Sri Lanka significant (positive) influences by foreign exchange while FDI and inflation have significant (negative) influences on stock market return. In second group, India and China both have significant (negative) influences by foreign exchange and inflation while FDI has insignificant (positive) influences on stock market return. The high value of R² show that variations in all independent variable have explained the all countries capital markets in all models. All-encompassing model admirable by probability of F-statistics which 95% of interval confidences. There are no serial correlation issues in all models by Durbin-Watson statistics value.

Macroeconomic factors; Stock market returns; SAARC countries; China; Multiple regression; Ordinary least square (OLS)

SAARC (1985) the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation an economic organization of eight countries (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) and China (the second largest economy in this world after USA) which are stock markets trading volume are biggest as an association compare to others in the rest of world. It are also plays an important influences role in leading the other countries stock markets in Asia like Middle East countries, Commonwealth Independent States (1991) Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan etc. and ASEAN (1967) countries i.e., Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore Thailand and Vietnam, and Iran and Turkey. SAARC countries i.e., Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka have more than 411 Billion foreign reserves and have a stable US$ exchange rate to local currencies in all countries and closely trading with each other member country. And any significant impact or changes any economic activities i.e., inflation could bring big effect to its trading partners in South Asian particulars region and China.

China, Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka stock markets index, have played a pivotal role in supporting the growth of Commerce, Industries, Telecommunication, Auto mobile and Science, and Technology area in SAARC countries which consists of major blue chips companies have a large human and financial capital. It is also well expanded as it comprises of diverse industries in SAARC countries and People's Republic of China. An outstanding performance of these emerging countries’ stock markets could influence numerous industries in any country even to inclusive Consumer Price Index as proxy for inflation rate, foreign exchange rate and foreign direct investment and so on. The research on these stock markets presentation could provide the market contributors a pure image of the development of various industries exists in SAARC countries.

The purposes of this research article to have following:

To discuss an idea of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) and China.

To examine the relations between the top SAARC countries and China’s capital markets return and three macro-economic variables namely foreign exchange rate (US$ to local currency), foreign direct investment (FDI) and inflation rate (measured by consumer price index).

To examine any correlation exist between top SAARC countries and China’s capital markets stock return and macro-economic factors.

In last century, numerous finance theories introduced by researcher and promote these theories by others scholars after a time span, earlier announced single factor theory capital assets pricing model (CAPM) which considered return and then extension of CAPM by two factor model presented Arbitrage pricing theory (APT) which discussed same assets and many common risk factor and later three factor model announced Fama and French model which extended the CAPM by risk (β), size and value of firm and later, further improvement of Fama and French model extended by momentum factor called four factor model. The researcher worked on stock return upon whole capital market, industry and particular listed firm’s return and sometime comparison between these certain return of two firms and/or industry with assistance of common independent variables exist in any economy.

Emin et al. examined the market based ratio(s) of four independent variables namely quarterly earnings per share, quarterly price to earnings ratio and quarterly market to book ratio to impact on dependent variable namely quarterly stock returns of six insurance companies in Istanbul Stock Exchange (ISE), Turkey. The researchers worked on quarterly data from second and third quarter of 2000 to fourth quarter of 2009 used methodology panel regression analysis. Study found that the market based ratios have explanatory power on both the changes in current stock returns and one period ahead stock returns. Earnings per share ratio, price to earnings ratio and market based ratio explains 0.06 of changes in current stock returns. The earnings per share ratio, price to earnings ratio and market based ratio explains 0.63 of one period ahead stock returns [1].

Doong et al. discussed the price and volatility spillovers a single independent variables exchange rate and the dependent variable(s) stock exchange markets of G-7 countries (Canada, France, Germany, Italy Japan, UK and USA) [2]. The researchers worked on weekly data from May 01, 1979 to January 01, 1999 used procedure of EGARCH model conclude future exchange rate movements will affect by stock prices, but it has less direct impact on future changes of stock prices. In foreign exchange market of France, Italy, Japan, and the United States have significant volatility spillovers and/or asymmetric effects from these stock markets.

Madaleno et al. examined the influence of expectations over international stock returns and macroeconomic three independent variables namely industrial production index, consumer confidence index and business confidence index and the dependent variable(s) share price index of United States, United Kingdom, Japan, Portugal, Spain, Germany, France and Italy [3]. The scholars worked from first quarter of 1985 to fourth quarter of 2009 implementation Augmented Dickey- Fuller test (ADF), the Phillips Perron test (PP), Kwiatkowski Phillips Schmidt Shin test (KPSS) and Vector Autoregressive model (VAR) conclude a positively correlation between share prices and changes in sentiment, except for Italy and Germany (consumer confidence index (CCI)). The stock return has only respond contemporaneously to their own shock(s), while leading to significant and strong responses of confidence & industrial production variable(s).

Nikolaos et al. analyzed the effects of total market index and the sustainability index by five independent variables namely crude oil prices, Yen/US$ exchange rate, 10 year bond value and nonfarm payrolls variables on companies that integrate CSR activities (DJSI United States) and all United States equity securities and the dependent variable United States stock market, United State [4]. The scholars worked on monthly data from January 2000 to January 2008 implementation GARCH and Augmented Dickey Fuller test (unit root test) achieved a negatively affect by crude oil returns in the US stock returns and positively affects by 10 year bond value. Negative relationship found between the United States stock market and the exchange rate (Yen/US$), a relationship exist between corporate social performance and employment indicators by may be attributed.

Ismail et al. discussed the impacts of macroeconomic four independent variables namely interest rate, broad money supply, domestic output and inflation rate and the dependent variable(s) Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore and the Philippines (ASEAN stock market) [5]. The scholars worked from 2004 to 2009 used procedure of regressions found significant strong impact by inflation rate, broad money (M2) and interest rate on the all these stock market movement, while domestic output found surprisingly insignificant. Also found a significant impact and unchanged over time the quantum effect of time onto the stock market movement.

**Research design**

The econometric model under reading given the following equation:

Y=α+β_{1}X_{1}+β_{2}X_{2}+β_{3}X_{3}+ε

"Y" is being dependent variable, "α"=being intercept of Y; ß_{1},ß_{2} & ß_{3} slope or change in all variable, while the ‘ε’=the random error stretch

The Implementation of the econometric Model:

LN R=α+β_{1} ER+β_{2 } LN FDI+β_{3} INF+ε

R=Natural Logarithm of Stock Return, α=Constant term, β_{1}=Foreign exchange rate, β_{2}=Natural Logarithm of Foreign direct
investment, β_{3}=Inflation and ε=The Error term

**Research methodology**

This study conducts secondary data to find the association between selected independent major economic factors and stock return of top SAARC countries (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) and China. In this article to estimate the precise circumstances and relationship exist to which other variables quantities may be expressed by using econometric model Ordinary Least Square (OLS), E-views8 statistical software and Microsoft Excel use in this study for data analysis & performed. Descriptive statistics and the Pearson’s productmoment correlation coefficient to measure of the linear correlation between two dependent and/or independent variables, as a measure of the degree of linear dependence between two variables dependent and/or independent variables X and Y giving a value between plus 1 and minus 1 inclusive. And also statistical regression technique use by Ordinary Least Square (OLS) to classify the direction and significance of relationships between dependent variables namely top SAARC countries (Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka) and China’s stock markets return and independent macro-economic variables namely foreign exchange rate, foreign direct investment and inflation (CPI) [6].

**Stock return:** The top SAARC countries and China’s capital
market’s stock return calculated as the monthly change in the stock
return by the following formula:

R (t)=LN R (t)

Where; R (t) the value of stock return of local stock exchange at month (t) and LN R (t) Natural Logarithm in Microsoft excel at month (t) of current month stock return. High frequency secondary data of stock return for Bangladesh; official website of Dhaka stock exchange www.dsebd.org, for India; Bombay stock exchange and for Pakistan; Karachi stock exchange and for Sri Lanka; Colombo stock exchange and for China; Shanghai stock exchange these all from yahoo finance source data covered a period from January 2011 to December 2015 [7].

**Foreign exchange:** The top SAARC countries and China’s foreign
exchange rate (ER) calculated as the monthly rate by the following
formula:

ER (t)=1/USD (t)

Where; ER (t) foreign exchange rate month t, and 1 divided by USD at time t are equal to local currency value at month (t). Foreign exchange data achieved for Bangladesh; the central bank of Bangladesh official website www.bb.org.bd, for India; Reserve Bank of India official website www.rbi.org.in, for Pakistan; State Bank of Pakistan official website www.sbp.org.pk, for Sri Lanka & China from the Federal Reserve official website www.federalreserve.gov collected monthly data covered a five years period from January 2011 to December 2015 [8].

**Foreign direct investment:** The top SAARC countries and China’s
foreign direct investment (FDI) calculated as the monthly value by the
following formula:

FDI (t)=LN (t)

Where: FDI (t) the value at month t and LN (t) is Natural Logarithm in Microsoft excel at month (t) of foreign direct investment value. Foreign direct investment data achieved for Bangladesh; the central bank of Bangladesh official website www.bb.org.bd, for India; the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion; Ministry of Commerce & Industry, Government of India official website www.dipp.nic.in, for Pakistan; State Bank of Pakistan official website www.sbp.org.pk, for Sri Lanka; Central Bank of Sri Lanka official website www.cbsl.gov.lk, for China; Ministry of Commerce, People’s Republic of China official website www.english.mofcom.gov.cn, which covered a five years period from January 2011 to December 2015 [9,10]

**Inflation:** The measured of the inflation rate by the consumer
price index (CPI) of the top SAARC countries and China. The twelvemonthly
(YOY) change in CPI is given by the following formula:

INF (t)=CPI (t) – CPI (t-12)

Where; I (t) the annual change in CPI, that is, the inflation in month t, CPI (t) is the CPI in month t and CPI (t-12) is the CPI in the same month of the previous year time period. Data obtained for Bangladesh; the central bank of Bangladesh website www.bb.org.bd, for India; website www.inflation.eu, for Pakistan; the State Bank of Pakistan official website www.sbp.org.pk, for Sri Lanka; official website of the Department of Census and Statistics Sri Lanka, www.statistics.gov.lk, for China; official website www.inflation.eu, covered a period of five years from January 2011 to December 2015 [11,12].

The top SAARC countries and China are divided into two groups: In first group Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka and second group India and China;

**Bangladesh**

**Discussion:** The value -0.2134 weak downhill (negative)
relationships exist between exchange rate and FDI. An exchange rate
and inflation relationship are a weak uphill (positive) linear relationship
by 0.1747 values [13]. The value 0.5938 show that a moderate positive
relationship exists between exchange rate and Dhaka Stock market’s
Return. Moderate (negative) linear relationship exists between FDI
and inflation by values -0.6860. There are weak downhill (negative)
linear relationships exist by -0.4597 between the FDI and Dhaka stock
market’s return. Weak downhill (positive) linear relationships exist
between inflation and Dhaka stock market’s return by values 0.4743 **(Tables 1a-1c)**.

**Table 1c:** Regression equation – Bangladesh.

**Coefficient values:** In regression equitation; exchange rate,
foreign direct investment and inflation rate are independent variables
coefficient measure the marginal contribution to independent variables
of Dhaka stock exchange return the dependent variable. The value
7.5569 is y-intercept the constant term in above regression equation.
The relationship between Dhaka stock exchange return and exchange
rate is positive for the reason that if increase one unit in exchange rate
the independent variable than 167.6414 unit change in Dhaka stock
exchange return the dependent variable or if one percent increase
in exchange rate independent variable leads to a 167.6414% changes
in Dhaka stock exchange return the dependent variables with all
others constant. FDI and Dhaka stock exchange return relationship
is negative because that if increase one unit in FDI the independent
variable than -0.0776 unit change in Dhaka stock exchange return the
dependent variable or if value of FDI increase one percent the Dhaka
stock exchange return will change -0.077% with all others constant.
The relationship between Dhaka stock exchange return and inflation rate is positive reason behind if increase one unit in inflation rates the
independent variable than 2.3993 unit changes in Dhaka stock exchange
return the dependent variable or if increase one percent inflation leads
to a 2.3993% change in DSE return with all others constant [14].

**Standard errors:** This reports the “estimated” standard errors of
the coefficient estimates and measures the statistical reliability of the
coefficient estimates, the larger the standard errors of exchange rate is
31.47, that are the more statistical noise in the estimates. And foreign
direct Investment standard errors are 0.0617 and inflation standard
errors 1.1331 both are normally distributed.

**T-statistics:** The T-ratio checks the individual significance of the
regression coefficient with the help of degree of freedom following
formula:

Degree of freedom=Total number of observation – Total number of (independent) variables

Degree of freedom=60 – 3

T-calculated value of exchange rate 5.32, FDI -1.25, and Inflation 2.11, all these probability values of exchange rate and inflation rate are statistical significant which are less than 0.05 except FDI insignificant which value is 0.21.

**F-statistics:** The Frequency of distribution statistics use to whole
model significance/insignificance. The probability values of F-statistics
0.00 show that model is good fit and statistical significance.

**Coefficient of determination:** The R^{2} value show that 0.5081%
variation in the all independent variable has explained by Dhaka stock
exchange. Therefore, the semi strong relationship survives between
independent variables and dependent variable in stock return explained by the variation in the independent. And the adjusted R² show if add
a relevant independent variable in regression equation than R^{2} will
adjust by 0.4818%.

**Serial correlation:** The Durbin-Watson statistics result show there
are no auto-correlation exist among all independent variables by the
value 1.8143 is nearest to 2 values.

**Discussion:** Pearson’s correlations show the value -0.8727 strong
(negative) relationships exists between KSE return and exchange rate.
KSE return and FDI relationships are a weak uphill (positive) linear
relationship by 0.1137 values. The value -0.8350 show strong negative
relationships exist between the KSE return and inflation. Lowest
(negative) linear relationship exists between exchange rate and FDI
by values -0.0613. There are strong (positive) linear relationships exist
by -0.7468 between the exchange rate and inflation. A Weak downhill
(negative) linear relationship exists between FDI and inflation by
values -0.0481 **(Tables 2a-2c)**.

**Coefficient values:** In regression equitation; exchange rate, FDI and
inflation are independent variables coefficient measure the marginal
contribution to independent variables of Colombo Stock exchange
return the dependent variable. The value 10.3214 is y-intercept the
constant term in above regression equation. The relationship between
Colombo Stock exchange return and exchange rate is positive for
the reason that if increase one unit in exchange rate the independent
variable than 97.3937 unit change in Colombo stock exchange
the dependent variable or if one percent increase in exchange rate
independent variable leads to a 97.3937% changes in Colombo stock
exchange return the dependent variables with all others constant. FDI
and Colombo stock exchange return relationship is negative because
that if increase one unit in FDI the independent variable than -0.1231 unit change in Colombo stock exchange the dependent variable or if
value of FDI increase one percent the Colombo stock exchange return
will change -0.1231% with all others constant. Relationship between
Colombo stock exchange and inflation is negative reason behind if
increase one unit in inflation the independent variable than -2.2424
unit changes in Colombo stock exchange return the dependent variable
or if increase one percent inflation rate leads to a -2.2424% change in
Colombo stock exchange return with all others constant [17].

**Standard errors:** This reports the “estimated” standard errors of
the coefficient estimates and measures the statistical reliability of the
coefficient estimates, the larger the standard errors of exchange rate is
18.8156, that are the more statistical noise in the estimates. And FDI
standard errors are 0.0405 and inflation standard errors 0.4496 both
are normally distributed.

**T-statistics:** The T-ratio checks the individual significance of the
regression coefficient with the help of degree of freedom following
formula:

Degree of freedom=Total number of observation – Total number of (independent) variables

Degree of freedom=60 – 3

T-calculated value of exchange rate 5.1762, FDI -3.0382, and Inflation -4.9875, all these probability values of exchange rate, FDI and inflation are statistical significant which are less than 0.05.

**F-statistics:** The Frequency of distribution statistics use to whole
model significance/insignificance. The probability values of F-statistics
0.00 show that model is good fit and statistical significance.

**Coefficient of determination: **The R² value show that 0.5621%
variation in the all independent variable has explained by CSE return
the dependent variable. Therefore, the semi strong relationship survives
between independent variables and dependent variable in stock return
explained by the variation in the independent. And the adjusted R²
show if add a relevant independent variable in regression equation than
R² will adjust by 0.5387%.

**Serial correlation:** The Durbin-Watson statistics result show there
are no auto-correlation exist among all independent variables by the
value 1.4508 is nearest to 2 values.

In first group; exchange rates have (positive) significant influence on Dhaka stock exchange, Bangladesh and Colombo stock exchange, Sri Lanka while in Pakistan has (negative) significant influence on KSE return. Reason behind since 2011 exchange rates are in stable in Bangladesh as compare to other regional countries, in Sri Lanka the government decrease their currency value for encourage to investors and in Pakistan an artificial decline US$ by new elected government. FDI has (negative) insignificant influence on Dhaka stock exchange return, Bangladesh. And in Pakistan (positive) insignificant influence on KSE return by FDI while in Sri Lanka (negative) significant influence on Colombo stock exchange return by FDI. Causes, better environment provided to foreign investors by a strong political elected government, in Pakistan political usability in same time and in Sri Lanka decline the foreign investment by Government’s week policies. Inflation has (positive) significant influence on Dhaka stock exchange return, Bangladesh. And in Pakistan and Sri Lanka have (negative) significant influence on KSE return and Colombo stock exchange’ return by inflation. Because international commodities (i.e., crude oil and gold) prices were decline and its good impact on emerging importing countries like Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka but the Governments of Pakistan and Sri Lanka didn’t transfer these benefits to general public due to reduce/control their financial budget deficit. Overall in group one a same economic conditions (foreign reserves and financial control system etc.) exist with same nature of capitalism emerging economies have a higher value R² explained by stock markets of Bangladesh, Pakistan and Sri Lanka and a better predict model of one term from another with fitness of statistical probability. Dhaka, Karachi and Colombo stock exchange take also influences by Chinghai stock exchange, China.

In second group; exchange rates have (negative) significant
influence on Bombay stock exchange return, India, and Chinghai
stock exchange return, China with almost same value. Reasons for,
US$ stable in India by strict policy of Government, in China an almost
constant rate exist because Chinese exports goods are high to compare
their imports goods and exchange didn’t positively influence on both
countries capital markets. FDI has (positive) insignificant influence on
Bombay stock exchange return, India, and Chinghai stock exchange
return, China with nominal differences. Causes for insignificant, a
better facilitate to foreign investors and a stable background economic
policies by their federal and stats Government with a strong political
government system. Inflation has (negative) significant influence on
Bombay stock exchange return, India, and Chinghai stock exchange
return, China with nominal differences. Because, international
trade commodities prices were reduce due to US$ rates decline in
international level and its negative impact on exporting countries like
India and China. Overall in second group, a similar nature of large
economies (domestic production via largest consumer markets) and
similar economic conditions (gold reserves, foreign reserves & natural
resources) exist with a value R² explained by stock markets of India
and China a better predict model of one term from another with fitness
of its statistical probability. For India; China is IST largest trading
partner in world, and for China; India is 10^{th} largest trading partner
in rest of world. The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), United States
of America has influences on rest of world especially in Bombay stock
exchange return, India and Chinghai stock exchange return, China.
