Is Technical Analysis Useful For Stock Traders In China? Evidence From The Szse Component A‐Share Index


  • Kong‐Jun Chen
  • Xiao‐Ming Li


. This paper uses daily stock prices and the trading volume of 39 constituent companies in the SZSE Component A‐Share Index on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange to examine the usefulness of technical analysis. It finds very weak evidence to support the view that traders and/or technical analysts can learn more about the future pattern of returns by actively using volume in conjunction with returns than those who only watch price movements.
