The modern tendency of Japanese politics-economy interaction has affected emerging countries. This article examines the influence of the House of Representatives sessions on returns to Nikkei 225. The conventional linear regression can only describe the impact of averages on returns, but cannot completely present all the possible relationships between the two. In order to avoid the restrictions of the above mentioned method, this article performs quantile regression to analyze the influence of the House of Representatives sessions on the returns of Nikkei 225.
