Volume- and Size-Related Lead-Lag Effects in Stock Returns and Volatility: An Empirical Investigation of the Warsaw Stock Exchange
University of Newcastle Business School
We analyze the autocorrelation structure of returns and volatility of stocks listed in the single auction system on the Warsaw Stock Exchange during the period January 1996 - October 2000. First, we find that size- and volume-related cross-autocorrelation in portfolio returns exists even after accounting for the portfolio's own-autocorrelation. Second, we find that size and volume leadership are independent from each other. Third, our results indicate slower adjustment of the small (low volume) portfolios to market-wide information that differs for up and down markets. We also find evidence for volatility spillovers between portfolio returns.
