Abstract

An attempt is made in this paper to examine whether stock returns in two premier two exchanges in India namely, Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), and National Stock Exchange (NSE) follow a random walk. Towards this end, data on major indices during the period 1997 to 2009 are analyzed by using non-parametric Runs and BDS tests. The findings of the study reveal that the stock returns do not follow random walk during the sample period.
