Since we are more interested in how efficient is the capital market, we define the following 3 forms of market efficiency hypothesis:
“A market is efficient if it reflects ALL available information”
[1] Strong-form
- ALL available info
[2] Semi-strong form
- ALL available info
[3] Weak-form
- ALL available info
All Available Information including inside or private information
All Public Information
Information in past stock prices
What if?DefinitionsImplicationsPriceEmpirics
“Stock prices are assumed to reflect any information that may be contained in the past history of the stock price itself.”
What if?DefinitionsImplicationsPriceEmpirics
“Stock prices are assumed to reflect any information that is publicly available.”
What if?DefinitionsImplicationsPriceEmpirics
“Stock prices are assumed to reflect ALL information, regardless of them being public or private.”

If the market is efficient,
1) at time 0, the positive news come, there is an immediate up in the stock price to the RIGHT level. (i.e., the PINK path)
2) There is no delays in analyzing news and slowly reflecting in the stock price like the ORANGE path does.
3) There is also no over-reaction like the BLUE path does, and then subsequently adjustment back to the correct level.
