Cross-Autocorrelations and Market Conditions in Japan
We show that changes in market conditions significantly affect cross‐autocorrelations and speed of adjustment in weekly stock returns. We find significant positive cross‐autocorrelations between weekly returns on a portfolio of small firms and lagged large‐firm portfolio returns only when the lagged aggregate market has experienced a decline in value. These positive‐return cross‐autocorrelations are also associated with lower abnormal portfolio trading volume and greater delays in the adjustment of individual stock prices to (negative) market‐wide information, particularly for small firms. The effect of lagged market states cannot be explained by market microstructure biases such as nonsynchronous trading or thin trading.
