About this book


Alexander Brändle investigates the relationship between different measures of trading volume and returns in the Swiss stock market. He discovers that stocks with unusual trading volume in a given month experience systematically higher subsequent returns. This abnormal volume effect is particularly strong in uncertain market situations including the 2008 downturn.
