Index Futures Trading Restrictions and Spot Market Quality: Evidence from the Recent Chinese Stock Market Crash
Qian Han and
Journal of Futures Markets, 2017, vol. 37, issue 4, 411-428
Using a difference‐in‐difference approach, we find that restrictions placed on the CSI 300 and CSI 500 index futures trading during the recent Chinese stock market crisis deteriorated spot market quality, particularly the September trade restrictions. Our results can be explained by the sudden risk exposure faced by alpha‐strategy traders who stop trading spots after the index futures trading restrictions are introduced, thus worsening the spot market quality. © 2016 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
