Do Big Investors’ Trades Have Predictive Power? A Note on Istanbul Stock Market
The net buying (selling) volume of the most net buyer (seller) brokers over a unit period is a widely followed piece of information in Istanbul Stock Market, which most market commentaries inaccurately refer to as “the net money in- or outflow”. It is, in fact, a proxy for big investors’ trading. In this note, we test whether this information has predictive value, whether market participants’ emphasis on this information is justified, or just an illusion. By doing so, we add to the literature on the relationship between big investors’ trading and stock returns, using a unique information set. Results suggest a significant contemporaneous association between the “net inflow” and current returns, but little predictive value
