Abstract

The paper aims at investigating herding behaviour in equity market by applying an alternative econometric methodology. The paper applies the threshold test developed by Hansen [2000] to standard herding model in order to capture a non-linear effect of extreme market movement on the trading behaviour of the participants. Using the econometric model with threshold effect, the paper finds little evidence for market-wide herding for the Indian equity market. Even in the extreme market conditions, participants appear to discriminate between different securities, as predicted by the rational asset pricing paradigm.
