Short Sales Constraints, Liquidity and Price Discovery: An Empirical Analysis on the Paris Bourse
AbstractIn the Paris Bourse some stocks are traded on a spot basis, while others are traded on a monthly settlement basis. The latter are likely to be less subject to leverage and short sales constraints. We empirically analyze the consequences of this difference on the order flow and the return process. Consistent with the theoretical analysis of Diamond and Verrechia (1987), we find that market sell orders are less frequent on the spot market than on the monthly settlement market (although not very significantly) and that the spot market reflects good news (significantly) faster than bad news.
