We have investigated the tail distribution of the daily fluctuations in 202 different indices in the stock markets of 59 countries for the time span of the last 20 years. Power law, log-normal, Weibull, exponential and power law with exponential cutoff distributions are considered as possible candidates for the tail distribution of the normalized returns. It is found that the power exponent depends strongly on the choice of the tail threshold and a sizeable number of indices can be better fitted by a distribution function other than the power law at the region that has power law exponent of 3. Also, we have found that the power exponent is not an indicator of the maturity of the market.
The distribution of fluctuations in the stock and commodity prices and stock market indices has been one of the active areas of research in finance and econophysics for a long time. The character of the tail part of the distribution is especially important in practice because it gives an indication about the maximum risk and reward in a portfolio. Based on the efficient market hypothesis, the distribution of returns is expected to be normal which is found to be not realized in the real data more than 40 years ago  and . Return distributions have fatter tails compared to the normal distribution. The character of the tails of the distribution of fluctuations in financial time series has been investigated by using many different distribution functions. The extreme returns have been studied by fitting to a generalized Pareto and generalized extreme value distributions  and . On the econophysics area, the power law is the most studied distribution. Stanley’s group has investigated the tail distribution of several stock indices as well as return of individual stocks and found a power law distribution with a universal exponent of 3 ,  and . Following Ref. , many studies on the distribution in different markets have been carried out. Among these Makowiec and Gnacinski  have considered a five year period of Warsaw Stock Exchange index and found power law exponents of 3.06 and 3.88 for the negative and the positive tail, respectively. Some reported work find an exponential distribution for the emerging markets, such as Oh, Kim and Um  for the 1-minute Korean KOSDAQ index, Couto Miranda and Riera  for daily data of Brazilian Bovespa index in the period 1986–2000 and Matia et al.  for the Indian Sensex 30 index, (a reanalysis of the Indian index by Pan and Sinha  finds a power law tail with an exponent close to that of mature markets). Yan et al. study the Chinese stock exchanges for the 1994–2001 period and report a strong asymmetry for the negative and positive tails with power exponents of 4.29 and 2.44, respectively. Among the many different proposals for the tail distributions normal inverse Gaussian of Barndorff-Nielsen , exponential  and , hyperbolic  and stretched exponentials. Also, at short time scales, a single qq-Gaussian is found to fit the return distribution of the Polish WIG20-index well . Even for the same market different distributions are proposed to explain the data at different economical conditions  (power-law for the inflationary period and exponential for the deflationary period). Recently, Drozdz et al.  examined the 1 min returns of S&P 500 index for the May 2004–May 2006 period and concluded that the tail is getting thinner and the exponent is larger than 3 which might be explained in part by the role of better dissemination of information on the efficiency of the markets. One of the outcome of power law research in financial return series is the stylized-fact “power law tail with an exponent which ranges from two to five depending on the data set used in the study” . There has been much effort to explain the microscopic origins of the power law tail  and the exponent of 3  and . The most widely used method for validating the power law and estimating its exponent has been criticized on statistical grounds . The tail index type approaches are also criticized based on bias due to the underlying series not being iid and tail threshold dependent problems in estimating the distribution parameters  and . The aim of the present study is to answer following questions: Are power law tails universal across the markets with different efficiencies? Is the power exponent of 3 universal? Is there any difference between the mature and emerging markets in terms of the distribution of the tails of the fluctuations? Is there any asymmetry of positive and negative tails? To answer these questions, we have analyzed the distributions of historical index fluctuation data of 202 indices from the stock markets of 59 countries by using statistically sound methods.

We have investigated the tail distribution of the returns of a large number of world indices. Log-normal, Weibull, power law and power law with cutoff are considered as candidate distributions. It is found that the answer to the question “which distribution fits the tail the best” depends on the choice of the threshold of the tail. If a common View the MathML sourcexmin=1 is chosen as the threshold, the widely accepted α≈3α≈3 exponent is found, but Vuong and nested-hypothesis testing statistics suggest that all three other distributions are much better at explaining the tail distribution. On the other hand, if View the MathML sourcexmin is chosen based on some statistically sound criteria (such as Kolmogorov–Smirnov or Anderson–Darling distance) the mean value of power exponent is larger than 3 and its dispersion is larger compared to the View the MathML sourcexmin=1 case. We have found no indication about the tail index or tail distribution–maturity relation. Concerning negative–positive tail asymmetry, we have found that although there might be some differences in the tail exponents for the left and right tails for a particular index, the distribution of tail exponents across different markets is symmetrical.
