Step by Step Solution

Efficient market hypothesis

Efficient market hypothesis is associated with financial economics that indicates that prices of assets depict all the information available.

Differentiation among the versions of efficient market hypothesis

Differentiation among various forms can be done in the following manner:

  • If past price information is not useful for future prices, then it indicates the weak form,
  • If prices reflect all public information, it indicates semi-strong form, and
  • If all the information is reflected in the stock prices, it states the strong form of an efficient market hypothesis.
