Essays on Short Selling and Margin Trading in China
Mr. Sharif’s research investigates the impact of regulation allowing short selling and margin trading in the Chinese equity market. He finds the prices and liquidity of stocks allowed for short selling and margin trading decline relative to their peers. These results imply that uninformed investors are more reluctant to trade following the regulation change. Mr. Sharif thesis also finds no consistent improvement in price efficiency measures following the removal of short selling and margin trading restrictions. However, there is evidence of a reduction in price clustering due to cultural superstition following the introduction of short selling and margin trading.
