Abstract
The study attempts to
find out the market efficiency of Indian and US stock market. For that two main
indices of India namely BSE Sensex and CNX Nifty are studied along with USDow
Jones for a various time brackets between 1993 to 2013. Various tests like KS
Test, Runs test, Auto correlation test, ttest and all descriptive statistics
with JB test are conducted for all three indices for a time bracket of 19932013, 19931995(normal), 19962000 (Before DotCom
Bubble), 20002002 (Dotcom Bubble), 20022007 (Before Credit Crisis), 20072009
(Credit Crisis) and 20092013 (After Credit Crisis). The research summarizes
that Indian stock market is not weak form efficient in all periods however;
from year 2002 onwards stock market exhibits some signs of efficiency.
Key Words:
 Market Efficiency, Indices
Introduction
Emerging markets usually
do not have strict standards in accounting and finance regulations and the
level of market efficiency as that of advanced economies of the world. However,
emerging economy like India and others have physical financial infrastructure
including banks, stock exchange, money market and capital market. In addition,
investment in emerging markets are sought by investors to tap the market
efficiency and thus to earn higher return. However, investments in emerging
markets come with higher risk due to political instability, domestic
infrastructure problems, currency volatility and limited equity opportunities. However,
despite the stage of the different market, it is impossible to ‘beat’ the
market because stock market efficiency causes existing share prices to always
incorporate and reflect all relevant information. In other words, as per
Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH), stocks always trade at their fair value on
stock exchanges, making it impossible for investors to either purchase
undervalued stocks or sell stocks for inflated prices. Efficient market
hypothesis is statedweak form, semi strong form and strong form of efficiency
on three common forms.
Review
of Literature
Malliaris
and Urrutia (1992) analyzed possible causal relationship among national stock
markets around the October 1987 stock market crash. The paper summarized that
leadlag relationship do not exists before and after market crash. The result
provided empirical evidence of the passive role played by Tokyo but fails to
confirm leading role played by New York or nonJapanese Asian markets during
1987 crash. Schwert (1989) analyzed behavior of stock return
volatility using daily data from 1985 to 1988 and found that on October, 19
there was a largest percentage change in value of the market and stock market
volatility jumped during and after market crash. However, it was also observed
that it returned to normal level more rapidly than any other historical crises.
Research by Yüksel (2002) on Istanbul Stock Exchange during the Russian crisis
in 1998 says that the comparison of the relationship during the crisis period
to those during pre and post crisis period proved that there was a structural
change regarding the price impact of the trading volume. Chancharoenchai and Dibooglu (2006)
examined the volatility spillovers in Southeast Asian emerging markets in the
context of the mid1997 financial crisis, and found spillover effects between
various equity markets. The paper summarized that the sudden fallout in
Thailand seems to have played an important role in the variation in excess
returns in other Southeast Asian markets and it supports the idea of the “Asian
Contagion” suggested that the crisis started in the Thailand and spread over to
other financial markets. Olowe (2009) found that in the Nigerian Stock market
returns show persistence in volatility and clustering and asymmetric
properties.
Kazi et al (2011)
investigated the contagion effect between stock market of US and sixteen OECD
countries due to global financial crisis and it found existence of contagion
effect between US and 16 OECD countries. Boyer
et al (2006) provided empirical evidence that market crises are speeded
globally. Authors categorized the stock markets of emerging economies in to two
parts: those that are eligible for purchase by foreigners and those that are
not. Research proved that greater comovement during high volatility period, especially
for accessible stock index returns indicates that crises spread through the
asset holding of the international investors rather than through changes in
fundamentals. A
novel approach was adopted by Herrero et al (2008) as they applied event study methodology
to analyze whether five south East Asian countries which devalued in 1997
namely Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand. The study was
based on the assumption that the expectation of devaluation should help the
stock of exporting firms outperform those of nonperforming firms and the study
could find evidence to support this hypothesis, however at different degrees
depending upon the country.
Study
by Salman et al (2012) attempted the short term relationship
between Karachi Stock Exchange, Bombay Stock Exchange, Hong Kong Stock
Exchange, and Tokyo Stock Exchange after the financial crisis of 2007. It
concluded that 1. Tokyo and Karachi Stock Exchange, 2. Hong Kong and Bombay, 3.
Karachi and Bombay (before and after crisis) 4. Tokyo and Bombay have no short
term relationship with each other; while Tokyo and Hong Kong stock exchange
have short term relationship with each other after the financial crisis of
2007. Research by Dhal
(2009) derives some crucial insights from the multivariate co integration
analysis of stock prices indices for the global markets of the US, UK, Japan,
Hong Kong, Singapore and India. Result says that these markets shared single co
integration relationship and the Indian market played a key role and the
analysis showed that global crisis could not have been associated with the
breakdown of the longrun relationships among the markets. Ghosh (2006) tried
to address India’s existence from the effect of financial crisis and analyzed
that India’s success can be attributed to key policy decisions namely
devaluation, IMF, partial liberalization of the domestic financial sector and
graduation opening of the external sector. In a similar track paved by Ghosh (2006);
Study by Jeyanthi et al (2012) summarized that there was no short term as well
as long term negative impact of financial crisis on the Indian stock exchange. Further,
the paper found that the Indian stock market was unaffected by the global
financial crisis. Study by Patel et al (2011) confirmed
the existence of weak form of efficiency in Indian market for a time period of
2004 to 2011. Jethwani, Achuthan (2013) investigated
weak form efficiency of the Indian market during, before and after financial
crisis and the result shows that Indian market is not weak form efficient in
all period and after 2002 it behaves in a more efficient way. This confirms
with the earlier study conducted by Patel et al (2011).
Data Description
Objectives
1.
To
examine the market efficiency level of selected stock markets and to test spillover
effect of the financial crash for a period of 1993 to 2013 for Indian and US
stock market.
2.
To
study and examine the extent of crisis at various periods for the given stock
markets and to derive efficiency level of Indian stock market.
To study the above
mentioned objectives, two main indices of India and one of US are selected as
sample for the study. The daily closing prices of BSE SENSEX, CNX NIFTY 50 and
DOW JONES of last 21 years is collected (1^{st} January 199331^{st}
December 2013). The daily price values of the CNX Nifty 50 and BSE Sensex is collected
from the website of NSE and BSE respectively. Dow Jones data are collected from
yahoo finance. The period was further broken in to 19932013
(Total study period), 19931995 (Normal), 19962000 (Before Dot com Bubble), 20002002
(Dot com Bubble), 20022007 (Before Credit Crisis), 20072009 (Credit Crisis)
and 20092013 (After Credit Crisis). Before conducting any test, it is
required to test whether data are stationary or not and for that Augmented
Dicky Fuller Test (ADF) was conducted.
Returns are calculated
using logarithmic method and it was analyzed by using time series volatility.
Further, to study the variability in stock prices, standard deviation is used
as a proxy. The logarithmic method to calculate return is as follows:
R_{t} = In (I_{t}
/ I_{t1})* 100
Where R_{t} stands for return of
the index and I_{t} indicate index value at time‘t’.
To compute standard deviation following
standard formula was used.
Data collection and
interpretation
Augmented Dicky Fuller
(ADF) test indicates that data are stationary at first difference.
Normality test
Many statistical tests (e.g. ttest)
require that data are normally distributed and therefore it should always be
checked if this assumption is satisfied. The null hypothesis is that the data
is normally distributed and the alternative hypothesis is that the data is not
normally distributed. The KolmogorovSmirnov test is used for sample of more
than 2000. If pvalue is less than 0.05, null hypothesis is rejected.
Here as p value is 0.00
for all three indices (table 1 of appendix A B and C), null hypothesis is
rejected which means that data are not normally distributed. Hence,
nonparametric tests are conducted.
It is a nonparametric
test and is used to test weak form of efficiency of stock market. This test
emphasizes on the direction of change and does not consider the change in
value. The test ignores the type of distribution followed in time series and is
used to check the randomness in time series under consideration. At 5%
confidence level, if the observed value of z is 1.96, null hypothesis is
accepted. Following are the null hypothesis to
check efficiency of the market.
1. Indian
Stock Market is weak form efficient market.
2. Indian Stock market follows random walk
Analysis for Descriptive Statistics:
To study
the above mentioned objectives, one of the basic requirements is that data
should be normal. Usually, main two parameters namely mean and variances are
used to describe the distribution. For that skewness, kurtosis, JarqueBera
test is applied to test the normality of the data. JarqueBera test is a
goodness of fit test of whether the sample data have the skewness and kurtosis
matching a normal distribution. In the data, when the skewness is zero,
kurtosis is three and JB is zero, then it is perfectly normally distributed. Coefficient
of variation shows volatility of the data.
SENSEX
Five (19932013,19931995,
20002002, 20022007, 20072009) out of seven periods under study has negative
skewness, though the value is small; it indicates the tail on the left side is
longer than the right side and the bulk of the values lies including median to
the right side of the mean. Remaining two periods (19962000, 20092013) shows
positive skewness. In case of Kurtosis, four period (19931995, 19962000,
20002002, 20072009) out of seven falls under Platykurtic distribution and other
three periods (19932013, 20022007, 20092013) falls under Leptokurtic
distribution. Therefore, it can be said that distribution of data is not
normal. So on the basis of descriptive statistics, null hypothesis of random
walk is rejected. For Jarque Bera Test, null hypothesis of random walk is
rejected for all periods as value of JB is higher than zero. Coefficient of
Variation in initial two periods (19932013, 19931995) is quite high compare
to other five periods. The value of CV shows that gradually market has become
less volatile. (Refer to Table No.2 of appendix A)
CNX NIFTY
Four (19932013,
20002002, 20022007, 20072009) out of seven periods under study has negative
skewness, and it indicates the tail on the left side is longer than the right
side and the bulk of the values lies including median to the right side of the
mean. Remaining three periods (19931995, 19962000, 20092013) shows positive skewness.
In case of Kurtosis, three period (19931995, 20002002, 20072009) out of
seven falls under Platykurtic distribution and other four periods (19932013, 19962000,
20022007, 20092013) falls under Leptokurtic distribution. Hence, it can be
summarized that distribution of data is not normal. So on the basis of
descriptive statistics, null hypothesis of random walk is rejected. Jarque Bera
test and coefficient of variation indicates same conclusion as that of Sensex. (Refer
to Table No. 2 of Appendix B)
DOWJONES
Five (19932013,19931995,
19962000, 20002002, 20092013) out of seven periods under study has negative
skewness, even if the value is small it indicates the tail on the left side is
longer than the right side and the bulk of the values lies including median to
the right side of the mean. Remaining two periods (20002007, 20072009) are
having positive skewness. In case of Kurtosis, three period (19931995, 20002002,
20022007) out of seven falls under Platykurtic distribution and other four
periods (19932013, 20022007, 20092013) falls under Leptokurtic distribution.
Hence, we can say that distribution of data is not normal. So on the basis of
descriptive statistics, null hypothesis of random walk is rejected. For Jarque
Bera Test, null hypothesis of random walk is rejected for all periods as value
of Jarque Bera is higher than zero. Coefficient of Variation is quite high in
the overall period only. (Refer to Table No. 2 of Appendix C)
In summary, for Sensex except
two periods (19931995, 20072009), remaining five periods are not normally
distributed and which leads to rejection of the null hypothesis of random walk and
similar result is found for CNX Nifty. While for the Dow Jones in all seven periods,
the value of P is significant. That means the data is not normally distributed
which leads to rejection of the null hypothesis of random walk for these
periods.
Runs Test
and analysis
For both the indices
namely Sensex and Nifty, two (20072009, 20092013) out of seven periods the
value of Z is insignificant at 5 % significance level and its value lies inside
the interval of ±1.96, so null hypothesis of random walk is accepted. While in
five (19932013, 19931995, 19962000, 20002002, and 20022007) out of seven
periods, null hypothesis of random walk is rejected (Refer to Table No. 4 of
Appendix A, B). While for the Dow Jones in four periods (19931995, 19962000,
20002002, 20092013) out of seven periods the value of Z is insignificant at 5
% significance level and its value lies inside the interval of ±1.96, so null
hypothesis of random walk is accepted. While in three (19932013, 20022007,
20072009) out of seven periods, null hypothesis of random walk is rejected. (Table
4 of Appendix C).
Autocorrelation
and analysis
Autocorrelation is the
crosscorrelation of a signal with itself as it describes the correlation
between values of the process at different times as a function of the two times
or of the time lag. For null hypothesis to be true, observed serial
correlation should not be statistically significant i.e. should not be greater
than three times the standard error of coefficient. In case of Ljung Box Q statistics, if the value of P <0.05
then it can be said that autocorrelation exist.
For all three indices
namely Sensex, CNX Nifty and Dow Jones in all periods the value of P is
significant which means that autocorrelation exists in the series. In addition
to that, there is at least one lag where correlation coefficient is > 3*Standard
error for all periods. Hence, existence of autocorrelation ultimately rejects
the null hypothesis of random walk in all periods. (Table No. 6 of Appendix A,
B and C).
KruskalWallis
test
KruskalWallis test is
a oneway analysis of variance by ranks and a nonparametric method to test
whether samples originate from the same distribution. The method is used for
comparing more than two samples that are independent or not related and it does
not assume a normal distribution of the residuals. The null hypothesis are.
H_{0}: All Three Stock
market indices follow the random walk for the entire period i.e. from year 1993
to 2013.
H_{0: }Random walk
follows among all three indices before the credit crisis i.e. from year 2002 to
2007.
H_{0: }Random walk
follows among all three indices during the credit crisis i.e. from year 2007 to
2009.
H_{0: }Random walk
follows among all three indices after the credit crisis i.e. from year 2009 to
2013.

If the P
value is small, it rejects the idea that the difference is due to random
sampling. For the entire period the pvalue is
0.585, for the period of 20022007, the pvalue is 0.000, for the period of 20072009,
the pvalue is 0.976 and for the period of 20092013, the pvalue is 0.507
Consequently, it can be
concluded that only before the period of credit crisis, the difference is not
due to random sampling. Random walk follows between all three indices for
entire period of 21 years as well as during the credit crisis and after the
crisis period. A random walk is defined by the fact
that price changes are independent of each other.
Conclusion
This
study investigates the market efficiency of selected three stock markets. In
addition to that, this research analyses that whether the crisis period alters
the conclusion of efficiency of the stock market. The daily return series of
SENSEX, S&P CNX Nifty and Dow Jones for a period of 1993 to 2013 is considered
for the study. The research summarizes that Indian stock market is not weak
form efficient in all periods however, from year 2002 onwards stock market
exhibits some signs of efficiency. Further, all three independent samples are
compared and is concluded that it follows random walk during and after the
crisis period but not before the crisis period.
