- Weather impacts on stock returns have been explored by previous studies. However, trading volume has not been noticed too much. We believe it is important to test the relationship between weather phenomena and trading volume, since stock return and volatility do not fully reflect the trading activities. In particular, trading volume can additionally represent for adventurous activities. In this paper, we investigated the effect of daily weather from 2002 to 2015 on the 3,398 data points for Hang Seng Index volume.. To test the hypothesis, we use linear regression model to analyze the weather and trading volume data. The results indicate that range of weather factors are significantly correlated with trading volume in Hong Kong stock market. These results are not in line with market efficiency since people's trading volume is significantly influenced by weather rather than fundamental analysis.
