Istanbul Stock Exchange Review, 1997, vol. 1, issue 4, 15-26

Abstract: This paper examined the weak form of efficiency by using the random walk test and the day of the week effect at Istanbul Stock Exchange (ISE) during the period 4 January 1988 - 27 December 1996. The random walk model is rejected for all periods under consideration and test results provide an evidence in favour of the rejection of a weak form of efficiency. Testing for the day of the week effect resulted that both Friday and Monday effects are observed and thus, it is concluded that market is inefficient.
