Abstract

We derive the limiting process of the stochastic dominance statistics for risk averters as well as for risk seekers when the underlying processes might be dependent or independent. We take account of the dependency of the partitions and propose a bootstrap method to decide the critical point. In addition, we illustrate the applicability
of the stochastic dominance statistics for both risk averters and risk seekers to analyze the dominance relationship between the Chinese and US stock markets in the entire period as well as the sub-periods before and after the ¯nancial crises, including the internet
bubble and the recent sub-prime crisis. The ¯ndings could be used to draw inferences on the preferences of risk averters and risk seekers in investing in the Chinese and US stock markets. The results also enable us to examine whether there is any arbitrage opportunity in these markets and whether these markets are eficient and investors are rational.
