Robust estimates of daily seasonality in the Irish equity market
Abstract:This article examines, in a robust manner, the question of whether or not an unusual form of daily seasonality existed in the Irish market. Previous studies have indicated that the pattern of such seasonality in Ireland differs from that found elsewhere. Other research indicates that daily seasonality may not exist at all. The findings are that after adjusting for sample size and taking into account the non-normality of the data, the evidence for daily seasonality in the Irish market is very weak. This is confirmed by resampling methods.
