Are local or international influences responsible for the pre-holiday behaviour of Irish equities?
The pre-holiday behaviour of equity price and return indices on the Irish Stock Exchange do not display consistent positive pre-holiday returns. This is contrary to the majority of studies in this area, and the result is found across a number of sectoral indices. The analysis also indicates that these curious results are driven by local, as opposed to international, influences.
