The application of generalized ARCH models to daily stock returns shows that changes in delivery and payment terms
are an important factor in determining measured volatility. In contrast, the holding period between trading days when markets are closed is relatively unimportant. This new approach allows fresh insights into stock return volatility and indicates that subsequent research on stock return volatility should incorporate the effects of payment delays.
