Economic policy uncertainty and stock market liquidity

Economic policy uncertainty and stock market liquidity PurposeThis study aims to examine the relationship between economic policy uncertainty and stock market liquidity in an order-driven emerging stock market.Design/methodology/approachEmpirical estimates are based on vector autoregressive Granger-causality tests, impulse response functions and variance decomposition analysis.FindingsThe empirical findings suggest that economic policy uncertainty moderately influences stock market liquidity during normal market conditions. However, the role of economic policy uncertainty for determining stock market liquidity is significant in times of financial crises.

Abstract

PurposeThis study aims to examine the relationship between economic policy uncertainty and stock market liquidity in an order-driven emerging stock market.Design/methodology/approachEmpirical estimates are based on vector autoregressive Granger-causality tests, impulse response functions and variance decomposition analysis.FindingsThe empirical findings suggest that economic policy uncertainty moderately influences stock market liquidity during normal market conditions. However, the role of economic policy uncertainty for determining stock market liquidity is significant in times of financial crises. The authors have also observed a significant portion of variation in stock market liquidity that is attributed to investor sentiments during financial crises.Originality/valueThis study is original in nature and provides evidence to consider economic policy uncertainty as a possible source of commonality in liquidity in the context of an emerging market.
