Abstract: This study examines the role for the Tokyo and the New York Stock Exchange in price discovery for Japanese shares. A structural approach is employed to investigate the efficiency and contribution in price discovery separately. We find that the speed of incorporating information into prices is faster in New York than in Tokyo. Three approaches are taken to control the size of information and confirm that New York is the efficient side in information assimilation. We also find that the observable liquidity measures such as trade frequency, bid–ask spread, volume per trade and return variance, explain the price discovery efficiency.
