By constructing a TVP-VAR-DY model, this paper investigates the dynamic spillover effect of Sino-US economic policy uncertainty on China's asset price volatility. The study finds that Sino-US EPU is the net exporter of China's asset price volatility spillover effect, and the net spillover effect of Sino-US EPU on China's asset prices volatility deviates from the EPU index trends of the respective countries. EPUs in China and the United States are observed in a state of mutual spillover. The network structure of the net spillover effect of asset price volatility between China and the United States shows a dynamic evolutional trend, and the spillover effect of EPU index on asset price volatility in China is heterogeneous in different periods and different levels.
