Except the relation between Philippines’ capital Market and the Singapore’s capital market, all other markets are fully integrated significantly. The integration exists at time zero (0), while at lag 1 and lag 2 periods it reduces sharply and become insignificant.

A shock in any ASEAN market will easily and quickly affects all other markets in ASEAN region.
