Abstract

This paper evaluates monthly stock index price from the Taiwan stock market for evidence of weak form market efficiency. Four empirical methodologies are employed: the Ljung-Box Q test, the binomial distribution test, the runs test and the unit root test of stationarity in stock prices. Empirical evidence suggests that the monthly stock price for the Taiwan stock market exhibits weak-form efficiency.
