Abstract

This paper tests whether the magnitude of the serial correlation of monthly stock returns varies with trading volume. In both the 1915-1945 and 1946-1989 periods, it finds a statistically significant relationship between NYSE volume shocks and return reversals. The point estimates suggest that if month "t" has a one-standard-deviations shock to trading volume, an additional 40 to 50 percent of month t's stock return is eventually reversed. Additional results indicate that the volume shocks are not just a proxy for previously known predictors of aggregate stock returns such as the dividend/price ratio, the term structure, and the default premium.
