Abstract

The paper examines the influence of after-hour trading on sixteen sector wise indices listed on National Stock Exchange of India Limited for year 2017 & 2018. We establish two independent conditions based on daily opening, closing, high & low prices during market hours for indices & listed index companies for each year. Our findings indicate that influence of after-hour trading on Indian equity market for year 2017 is higher than that of year 2018 based on individual listed companies performance under their respective sector wise index when the price of equity rises over previous market day in accordance with condition 1. However, the study suggests that there is no clear indication for after-hour trading influence on Indian equity market between year 2017 & 2018 when the equity price fell in comparison to previous market day in accordance to condition 2.

Keywords: Price discovery, NIFTY, NSE, After-hour trading, After Market Order (AMO).
