【内容简介】

This paper provides a new perspective for understanding the impact of mood on stock trading. Using the matching data of city-level traffic congestion index and stock block trading in China, we investigate the impact of traffic congestion in the trader’s city on stock trading including trading price and stock return, and further inspect the role of information. The empirical results indicate that traffic congestion in the buyer or seller’s city can significantly reduce the trading premium rate, and it persists after addressing endogeneity concerns and across different methods. However, the effect of traffic congestion is only significant or much larger when there is less public or private information on trading stock. We also find that the traders in cities with higher traffic congestion will suffer a significant loss after twenty days of trading, and the effect only exists when there is less information on trading stock.
