Temperature Effect: How to do it?

Weather effect is another interesting research in finance. It is actually an argument for the traditional finance that relies much on rational behavior assumption. So, whenever you write problem statement for this topic, start it with the argument on rational behavior. I firstly read paper of Saunders (1993) then followed by Dowling and Lucey (2005). It really attracted me. How come weather may affect stock price? Right?

Who support it? A lot! For example, Loewenstein (2000) argues that the emotions and feelings influence our decision making process. It may dictate our long-term cost and benefits, hence, it will affect the equity pricing. The logic is simple, when it is rainy day, we tend to feel lazy compared to bright day (we tend to be aggressive). This emotion may affect our decision making. If it is rainy day, we tend to have our leisure time, meanwhile, during sunny day we tend to be rushed out (Yet, this debatable even in psychology field). Continue reading

Moon effect Research: How to Do it?


The moon effect research in economics and business field is interesting and intriguing. I met this topic by coincidence. That time I was solely on weather effect reading papers from Cunningham (1979) and Dowling and Lucey (2005). I remember that I prepared my manuscript for Journal of Bioeconomics, opened this journal to see its scope, but ended up with Herbst (2007) paper. It really attracted me.

When I read it, it was related to my PhD research (that time) and I wanted it to be part of my regressor. The issue is what theory to support it? How to measure it? How to rationale it? It was painstaking, but it has to be done. Continue reading

Catatan Untuk Penyelenggara Konferensi/Seminar Internasional

Catatan Untuk Penyelenggara Konferensi/Seminar Internasional

(A Note for Conference Organizing Committee)

-SPOILER ALERT: This note has around 1,059 WORDS –

Catatan ini saya mulai dengan 3 definisi. Pertama, konferensi di dalam tulisan ini adalah konferensi akademis, yang merupakan pertemuan para akademisi untuk memaparkan hasil temuan ilmiahnya. Kedua, penyelenggara adalah semua orang yang terlibat sebagai panitia. Terakhir, catatan ini merupakan feedback saya, murni opini pribadi, dan berdasarkan pengalaman dan pengamatan saya. Tidak ada tendensi bahwa semua konferensi itu baik, atau semua konferensi itu buruk. Hanya sebagai kritikan membangun dalam dunia akademis. Bisa juga dianggap semacam editorial note.

Okay, semua tahu kalau para dosen dan kewajiban mereka menulis artikel adalah love-hate relationship. Menulis artikel (terutama menulis untuk jurnal bereputasi) itu seperti tugas akhir mahasiswa. Bedanya, kalau tugas akhir hanya sekali sepanjang hidup mahasiswa, tapi kalau artikel, HARUS berulang kali. Konsekuensi logisnya jelas. Tidak ada publikasi? Tidak ada tunjangan, dan tentu saja tidak ada promosi.
