S&P 500 Cash Stock Price Volatilities

Author

  • Harris, Lawrence

Abstract

S$50P 500 stock return volatilities are compared to the volatilities of a matched set of stocks, after controlling for cross-sectional differences in firm attributes known to affect volatility. No significant difference in volatility is observed between 1975 and 1983--before the start of trade in index futures and index options. Since then, S$50P 500 stocks have been relatively more volatile. The difference is statistically, but not economically, significant. The relative increase occurs primarily in daily returns and only to a lesser extent in longer interval returns. Other factors besides the start of derivative trade could be responsible for the small increase in volatility. Copyright 1989 by American Finance Association.
