THE MARKET MODEL, CAPM AND EFFICIENCY IN THE FREQUENCY DOMAIN

Authors


Abstract

Abstract. This paper develops a frequency domain capital asset pricing and market model as a generalization of the existing temporal theory using formal financial models which are functions of fewquency. The market model is tested empirically using monthly Melbourne Stock Exchange data from 1964–1976 and frequency domain testing of the CAPM is discussed with implications for stock market efficiency.
