Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Stock markets are currently engines of the Economy. Its dynamics are largely based on the behavior of investors, whose sacred rationality is oftenly questioned. Looking to the last years’ stock markets behaviour, it is easy to verify a strong turbulence, a huge volatility and crucial moments that’s important to define, to explore, to explain… What influences stock markets behavior? What drives investors to make certain decisions? What information can be used to better understand these markets? What is the impact of macroeconomic indicators on stock markets? Do these impacts put into question the efficient market hypothesis? Is it possible to predict the behavior of a stock market in the long, medium or short term, based on the existing economic information? Do economic cycles dictate the behavior of markets? In this issue, we try to get answers to these and other questions. In essence, the aim of this special issue is to understand, to explore and to try to explain the impact of macroeconomic indicators on stock markets.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles in theory, practice and applications of Impact of Macroeconomics Indicators on Stock Market. All submissions must contain original unpublished work not being considered for publication elsewhere.
