These volatility and fluctuations are empirical proven but which macroeconomic factor affect stock prices in what proportion and with what frequency is not well known phenomenon. Although, there are many macroeconomic factors that affect the stock market, however, we considered only one macroeconomic factor for the purpose of this research paper; that is, oil prices and its impact on the stock market prices. Therefore, the aim of this research paper is to investigate the empirical relationship between oil prices shocks and stock market. An empirical approach has been utilized to accomplish this research paper. The findings of this research paper concludes that stock market and oil prices are related but under what circumstances how it will react is uncertain. JEL: E44, E03
