Efficient Market Hypothesis

The efficient market hypothesis precedes the fundamental theory of the finance and the economics, which explains the movements of the prices of the assets. The operation of the markets had done effectively which is accepted and the prices of the stock disclose all the information, which is available. The participants are confidential for the information, which is same and the fluctuations of the prices give responses to the new information. Thus, the investors are not allowing in the efficient market to gain returns, which are above the average without having any risk. The capability of the efficient market hypothesis has the shortage of fundamental, which enables the explanation of the excess volatility. The theory of efficient market are important in financial economics, supporter of the behavioral finance which believes in the numbers of the biases which involves the behavior of the irrational as well as rational and run the decisions of the investors (Nath, 2016).

Professor Eugene Fama said that, in the market of efficient, there is competition between the various participants which leads to that situation at the point of time in which the prices of the single securities which is actual discloses the information and its affects which is depend on the incidence that is already appeared and also that incidents which is supposed to be appeared in the future. In some other words, the efficient market is the estimation of the intrinsic value, which is the real price of the security at the point of the time.

The Efficient Market Hypothesis is Distinct into three Forms:

The Weak Form

The weak form is that form of the efficient market hypothesis in which the previous prices and the volumes, and other statistics of the market does not give any information that is useful for showing the prices of the future. If there is a change in the prices of stock, which is random then there is no use of the previous prices for forecasting the future price. There must be randomly changes in the price, as the changes occur due to the information, and the information reaches randomly. There must be changes in the price as soon as possible and at the right level in case of the information reached. If this form is right then the technical analysis declines.

The Semi-Strong Form

The semi-strong form is that form in which the prices disclose the information, which is available publicly and there are future expectations. This form suggested about the adjustments of the prices as soon as possible according to the new information and the previous information are not using for the best returns. If this form is right then it rejects the fundamental analysis.

The Strong Form

This form of the efficient market hypothesis reveals all the prices according to the availability of the information, which is publicly or not. The material knowledge and the information which is non-public are not using for the best results (Pawar, 2011).

Pension Fund Manager
