Big Fish in Small Ponds: The Trading Behavior and Price Impact of Foreign Investors in Asian Emerging Equity Markets

Anthony Richards ()

Journal of Financial and Quantitative Analysis, 2005, vol. 40, issue 1, 1-27

Abstract: This paper analyzes a new dataset for the aggregate daily trading of all foreign investors in six Asian emerging equity markets and provides two new findings. First, foreigners' flows into several markets show positive feedback trading with respect to global, as well as domestic, equity returns. The nature of this trading suggests it is due to behavioral factors or foreigners extracting information from recent returns, rather than portfolio rebalancing effects. Second, the price impacts associated with foreigners' trading are much larger than earlier estimates. The results suggest that foreign investors and external conditions have a larger impact on emerging markets than implied by previous work.
