Monday effect

Definition

A tendency of a stock market's returns to be relatively lower, or may even be negative, on Monday rather than any other day in the week. This theory also states that the returns on Monday are driven by the closing performance of the stock on the previous Friday. This effect generally causes an unstable performance of the stock market during the first hour of the trading day.
