Stock return volatility and information: an empirical analysis of Pacific Rim, UK and US equity markets
AbstractUsing weekly share return data from a sample of five Pacific Rim and the UK and US stock markets over the period 1 January 1988-14 October 1994, this paper examines the relationship between conditional return volatility, market performance and news arrival at the market-place. Our results suggest substantial asymmetries in the dynamics of price changes both within and across markets.
