Using the panel vector autoregression (VAR) method, this paper documents relationships between investor attention and stock market activities; i.e., return, volatility, and trading volume, respectively. In sum, bidirectional dynamic interdependence of the SVI–stock market activities relationship exists, in which the SVI–trading volume relationship shows the strongest evidence. This is consistent with prior literature using trading volume as a proxy of investor attention. However, the relationships in the developed and developing markets are statistically significantly different. The stock markets in the developed markets over-react more to the search volume than those in the developing markets. We postulate that investor attention is one of the key elements in asset pricing in stock markets. View Full-Text
