Macroeconomic Approach of the Determinants of Stock Price Movements in Jordan
This study aimed to test the effect of macroeconomic factors on the movements of stock prices of Jordanian industrial companies listed in Amman Stock Exchange (ASE) in order to provide empirical evidence about the determinants of the movements of stock prices. To achieve this objective, all the 77 Jordanian industrial firms listed at ASE for fifteen years from 2000 to 2014 have been selected, resulting in 1054 firm-year observations. The unbalanced pooled cross-sectional time series multiple least square regression method has been used to present data analysis. while the experiential results showed significant negative effect of two of the macroeconomic factors, namely, interest and inflation rates, on the movements of the Jordanian industrial companies stock prices, results found that the effect of money supply and GDP on the movements of stock prices were significantly positive. These results are consistent with (Mukherjee and Naka, 1995, Zhao, 1999 & Udegbunam and Eriki, 2001, Al-Qenae, Li & Wearing, 2002, Dimitrios Tsoukalas, 2003 , Ibrahim 2003; Chaudhuri and Smiles, 2004)
