This study examines investor herding behavior in Pacific-Basin equity markets. Results indicate that the level of herding is time-varying, and is present in both rising and falling markets. It is positively related to stock market performance, but negatively related to market volatility. Herding estimates across markets are positively correlated, signifying comovement of herding behavior in the region. The findings suggest that tests for herding should consider its dynamic behavior.
