Validating intra-day risk premium in cross-sectional return curves

Zhao, Y. (2021) Validating intra-day risk premium in cross-sectional return curves. Finance Research Letters, 43 . Article Number 102020. ISSN 1544-6123. (doi:10.1016/ (KAR id:93918)


This paper investigates the cross-sectional asset pricing for intra-day return curves. By introducing a functional Fama-MacBeth regression approach, the validation of the intra-day risk premium associated with the Fama-French Carhart factors is examined. The empirical evidence reveals that these common risk factors show weak explainability to the entire cross-sectional intra-day returns, despite significant risk premiums that are discovered in specific half-hour time-spans in bullish sentiment.
