Abstract or Description

The frequent ups and downs are characteristic to the stock market. The conventional standard models that assume that investors act rationally have not been able to capture the irregularities in the stock market patterns for years. As a result, behavioural finance is embraced to attempt to correct these model shortcomings by adding some factors to capture sentimental contagion which may be at play in determining the stock market. This paper assesses the predictive influence of sentiment on the stock market returns by using a non-parametric nonlinear approach that corrects specific limitations encountered in previous related work. In addition, the paper proposes a new approach to developing stock market volatility predictive models by incorporating a hybrid GARCH and artificial neural network framework, and proves the advantage of this framework over a GARCH only based framework. Our results reveal also that past volatility and positive sentiment appear to have strong predictive power over future volatility.
