In this paper, we analyze market efficiency for the Shanghai stock market over time using a model-free method known as multifractal detrended fluctuation analysis. Through analyzing the change of scale behavior, we find that the price-limited reform improved the efficiency in the long term, but the influence in the short term was very minor. Employing the method of moving window, using three different measures we find that the Shanghai stock market became more and more efficient after the reform. We also implement the same procedure on volatility series and find the evidence of inefficiency.
The Shanghai Stock Exchange was constructed on November 26th, 1990 and was put into operation on December 19th in the same year which led to the establishment of the Chinese stock market. As an emerging market, the Chinese stock market was on the process of becoming more and more mature after it had experienced some essential reforms during its history of no more than twenty years. For listed companies and investors, one of the most important reforms was the price limit carried out on December 16th, 1996. After the reform, the range of daily price variations would be at most 10%, and some special treated stocks would be at most 5%. The Chinese stock market is a typically order-driven market. If an order price were 10% (some special treated stocks 5%) higher or lower than the closing price of a previous business day, the order would be ineffective and the transaction cannot be accomplished. This kind of artificial limit hampers the occurrence of the possible transactions to a certain extent which is intuitionally in contradiction with the free market. However, for an emerging market like the Chinese stock market, the limit is necessary and very important for controlling the speculative bubble. Before the reform, stock prices changed very fiercely with their range sometimes even reaching 100% in a day (such as 600 601, 600 653). The market could also be easily operated by some institutional investors. After the reform, the change of market index became more moderate. This reform produced essential effects on market micro-structure. It is very necessary for us to analyze the influences on market efficiency brought by the reform and the evolution of market efficiency during its history. Many econophysicists contributed to the study of market efficiency (in Fama sense) through finding the evidence for long-range correlations. The Rescaled Range Hurst analysis (R/S) introduced by Hurst  in 1951 is the most popular scaling method to estimate power-law correlation exponents from random signals. However, the R/S statistic is highly influenced by outliers and presents a biased evaluation of the Hurst exponent. Peng et al.  proposed the detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA) when they studied the correlation of molecular chains in deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). This method avoids the spurious detection of apparent long-range correlations that are an artifact of patchiness and has become a widely used technique for the determination of (mono-)fractal scaling properties. Using the method of DFA, Tabak and Cajueiro  also provided the evidence for the market becoming weakly efficient over time by testing for time-varying long-range correlations in prices of crude oil markets. Jose Alvarez-Ramirez et al.  found that crude oil markets displayed a time-varying short-term inefficient behavior that became efficient in the long term. Besides, Serletis and Rosenberg  considered that energy futures returns displayed long-range correlations and the particular form of which was anti-persistence employing detrended moving average analysis (DMA). Cajueiro and Tabak  using R/S method and AR-GARCH model analyzed emerging markets and found the evidence of becoming more and more efficient. Jose Alvarez-Ramirez  also found that the efficiency degrees of US stock markets were becoming higher and higher after the end of the Bretton Woods system using Time-varying Hurst exponent. Kian-Ping Lim  evaluated the relative efficiency of stock markets by comparing the extent of significant nonlinear serial correlations using Portmanteau bicorrelation test statistic in rolling sample framework. Cajueiro and Tabak  considered that financial market liberalization could increase the degree of market efficiency using time-varying Hurst exponent in the case of Athens stock exchange. In this paper, we employ multifractal detrended fluctuation analysis (MF-DFA) to detect the evolution of efficiency degree of Shanghai stock market. We find that after an reform, Shanghai stock market became more efficient in the long term but inefficiency still existed in the short term. This reform also induced some instability to the market. To detect the local situation of market efficiency, we analyze the evolution of local Hurst exponents. We define a new measure of market efficiency degree, and find that the multifractality degree can also be used to measure the degree of market efficiency under a certain condition. Empirical results show that Shanghai stock market overall became more and more efficient after the reform. We also carry the same procedure on the volatility series. Empirical results show that volatility series of Shanghai stock market appear apparently long-range auto-correlations which indicate that the volatility series have no trend of becoming more efficient, and conventional models such as GARCH cannot be used to forecast the volatility of Shanghai stock market. Recent situation of market efficiency is also discussed. This paper is organized as follows: Section 2 provides methodology. Data description is provided in Section 3. We show Empirical results in Section 4 and some discussions in Section 5. At last, we provide some conclusions in Section 6.

In this paper, we have imposed MF-DFA on the return series of Shanghai stock market to find the evolution of efficiency degree. Empirical results show that price-limited reform greatly improved efficiency degree in the long term, but the influence was very slight in the short term. We also define a new measure of degree of market efficiency. To obtain the local situations, we employ the method of rolling window and find that Shanghai stock overall became more and more efficient gradually from the trend of three measures, Hurst exponent, DME and DMEE, which is equal to multifractality degree under a certain condition. We also carry the same procedure on volatility series and the evidence show an inefficient fact. Market efficiency is a subtle concept that is hard to test empirically. Under the environment of financial crisis, the influence on market efficiency is an important topic. In fact, the financial crisis has not had any very essential effects on Shanghai stock market until now. However, we cannot obtain the conclusion that Shanghai stock market is more efficient from this. The reasons of minor influence are the fact that the Chinese capital market has not been opened completely and asset securitization is still in the initial stage now. The phenomenon of continuously large fluctuations within several days still always appears, (e.g. from August 14th, 2009 to August 20th, 2009) implying the appearance of correlations which indicates that Shanghai stock market is not efficient in the short term now. Since the beginning of this year, SCI kept overall upward trend. The persistence of fluctuation also indicates that Shanghai stock market is not efficient in the long term. Our future work will focus on detecting the influence on market micro-structure and investor psychology.
