Globalization has opened the door for the investors to avail various investment avenues across the globe. American Depository Receipt (ADR) is one such opportunity to the investing community. The ADR is a proxy for the Indian shares to enable them to be traded in the American stock exchanges. Various studies conducted on Depository Receipts (DRs) have shown that the trading on the DR sin the foreign market has its influence in the home country’s stock in terms of price, volatility and volume. This interested me and this project is concerned about studying “Whether the price fluctuations of ADR affect the corresponding Indian share prices?”
After the liberalization of the economy in 1991, the corporatist started sourcing their capital from both domestic and foreign markets. The Indian shares cannot be directly listed in the American stock exchanges. ADRs have been very helpful in this purpose. So a custodian bank receives the shares as deposit and issues receipt to the market. These receipts are issued in appropriate ratio to the shares deposited with the depository. The market players in the stock exchanges trade these receipts.
