We analyze the period 2001-2006 for different forecasting horizons and consider different sub-samples. Using fundamental financial ratios and including variables such as the implied volatility of the S&P 500 index, we find some evidence of predictability of equity risk premia for these markets. Other preliminary results include the tests of stationarity for all the variables and we find evidence of cointegration among some of the variables.
