dc.description.abstractStock markets periodically experience sharp falls with some referred to as outrightcrashes. The extant literature has generally resorted to survey type evidence to determine thebehavior of investors during such episodes. These kind of studies come to the conclusion thatfundamentals play little role in explaining sharp stock market downturns as in October 1987. Weknow of no econometric study that asks whether feedback, momentum or trend chasing typebehavior might explain the behavior of large stock market downturns. Resorting to a feedbacktrader model, we estimate a variety of asymmetric GARCH-type models. Based on daily data onthe Dow Jones Industrial Average index since 1915 we find that there is evidence of positivefeedback trading during episodes of stock market crashes. Hence, the econometric evidence isbroadly consistent with findings based on surveys.en_US
