Abstract

This letter examines the importance of sentiment effects on asset allocation decisions in mainland China. While liquidity matters too, we find that rising stock market sentiment exerted a statistically significant negative effect on Chinese time deposit growth during 2003-2007.

Keywords: China, savings deposits, share prices, sentiment, Shanghai
