Advocates of weak form efficiency believe all current information is reflected in stock prices and past information has no relationship with current market prices.

The concept of weak form. Weak-Form Efficiency in the Gold Market I.

Our results show that greater changes in economic variables are associated with lower levels of rejecting by:   Weak-form of market efficiency is the weakest form of efficient market hypothesis (EMH). Semi-strong form and strong form of market efficiency are the two other forms of efficient market hypothesis.

Weak-form of market efficiency implies that technical analysis cannot be used to predict future price movements.

Then, in order to examine the weak-form market efficiency, DF-GLS (), Phillips-Perron () and Lee-Strazicich () unit root tests are applied to linear series and Kapetanios et al. (   Though the efficient market hypothesis theorizes the market is generally efficient, the theory is offered in three different versions: weak, semi-strong, and strong.

The weak form suggests today. The efficient-market hypothesis (EMH) is a hypothesis in financial economics that states that asset prices reflect all available information. A direct implication is that it is impossible to "beat the market" consistently on a risk-adjusted basis since market prices should only react to new information.

For more on EMH, including arguments against it, see this Efficient Market Hypothesis paper from legendary economist Burton G. Malkiel, author of the investing book, "A Random Walk Down Main Street." This book supports the Random Walk Theory of investing, which says that movements in stock prices are random and cannot be accurately predicted.

Strong-form efficiency is the opposite of weak form efficiency. Princeton economics professor Burton G. Malkiel coined the term in his book A Random Walk Down Wall Street.

Weak form efficiency tests are concerned with whether an investor might consistently earn higher than normal returns based on knowledge of historical price sequences. One can never prove weak form efficiency because there are an infinite number of ways to forecast future returns from past returns.

Question of whether markets are efficient, and if not, where the inefficiencies lie, is central to investment valuation. If markets are, in fact, efficient, the market price is the best estimate of value, and the process of valuation becomes one of justifying the market price.
