Applied Financial Economics, 2002, vol. 12, issue 11, 765-769

Abstract: The September performance of the DAX (German stock market index) was found to be below average in the period from 1959-1999. This finding is shown to be robust to several changes in the empirical specification. None of the variables under consideration - elections, risk premia and German unification - were able to resolve this puzzle.
