Abstract

The research on herding behavior in common stocks is extended to contracts traded on European futures markets. We use the Christie and Huang (1995) herding model to identify the possibility of the existence of herding behavior in thirteen commodity futures contracts traded on three European exchanges. The results support the conclusion that herding behavior is not present in futures markets.
