Examining the Day-of-the-Week Effects in Chinese Stock Markets: New Evidence from a Stochastic Dominance Approach
AbstractMany researchers have investigated the existence of day-of-the-week effects in different financial markets. However, they have usually adopted a parametric approach, which is known to have a few limitations. This paper adopts a non-parametric stochastic dominance (SD) approach to examine the day-of-the-week effects in Chinese stock markets. In contrast to the extensive evidence of day-of-the-week effects disclosed by a parametric mean-variance (MV) approach, our SD tests show that the day-of-the-week effect is much weaker. We find that there are only Wednesday effects in Chinese A-share and B-share stock markets.
