This article proposes a new directional dependence by using the Gaussian copula beta regression model. In particular, we consider an asymmetric Generalized AutoRegressive Conditional Heteroscedasticity (GARCH) model for the marginal distribution of standardized residuals to make data exhibiting conditionally heteroscedasticity to white noise process. With the simulated data generated by an asymmetric bivariate copula, we verify our proposed directional dependence method. For the multivariate direction dependence by using the Gaussian copula beta regression model, we employ a three-dimensional archemedian copula to generate trivariate data and then show the directional dependence for one random variable given two other random variables. With West Texas Intermediate Daily Price (WTI) and the Standard & Poor’s 500 (S&P 500), our proposed directional dependence by the Gaussian copula beta regression model reveals that the directional dependence from WTI to S&P 500 is greater than that from S&P 500 to WTI. To validate our empirical result, the Granger causality test is conducted, confirming the same result produced by our method.
