The random walk hypothesis for Chinese stock markets: Evidence from variance ratio tests

Amelie Charles and Olivier Darné

Economic Systems, 2009, vol. 33, issue 2, 117-126

Abstract: This study examines the random walk hypothesis for the Shanghai and Shenzhen stock markets for both A and B shares, using daily data over the period 1992-2007. The hypothesis is tested with new multiple variance ratio tests - Whang-Kim subsampling and Kim's wild bootstrap tests - as well as the conventional multiple Chow-Denning test. We find that Class B shares for Chinese stock exchanges do not follow the random walk hypothesis, and therefore are significantly inefficient. The Class A shares seem more efficient.
