STOCK MARKET DEVELOPMENT IN INDIA: IS THERE ANY TREND BREAK?
Pratap Chandra Biswal
This paper addresses the important question of what happened to the Indian stock market following financial liberalisation. Considering three stock market indicators, viz., size, liquidity and volatility, and applying two time series trend break techniques of Perron (1989, 1997) on monthly data (1991:1 to 1998:12) of Bombay Stock Exchange, it has been found that the Indian stock market grew and became more liquid after liberalisation. However, in respect of volatility the market had not exhibited any significant changes.
