ROJAS, Emilio  and  KRISTJANPOLLER, Werner. Price-volume ratio analysis by causality and day-of-the-week effect for the Latin American stock markets. Lect. Econ. [online]. 2015, n.83, pp.9-31. ISSN 0120-2596.

This paper examines the relationship between daily returns and trading volumes using the Granger causality test and, additionally, the day-of-the-week effect in the main Latin American stock markets for the period 1998-2014. It analyzes stock indexes from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru. This study utilizes heteroskedastic variance models and vector autoregression (VAR). Results indicate the presence of a strong day-of-the-week effect in volume and evidence of causality from stock market return over transaction volume variation for almost all analyzed markets.

Keywords : price-volume relationship; day-of-the-week effect; emerging markets; Granger causality.
