This paper explores the presence of the turn – of – the – month effect on Bucharest Stock Exchange. We employ daily values from 2002 to 2011 of the two important indices of the Romanian capital market: BET – C and RAQ – C, composed on the stock prices of some of the biggest Romanian companies and RAQ – C, which includes the stock prices of smaller firms. We find evidences of the turn – of – the – month effect only for the BET – C evolution.
