Abstract:Efficient capital markets are only influenced by new information. So news about a terrorist attack should influence the domestic stock market. This study aims to examine in what way the domestic stock market is influenced by terrorist attacks. Therefore the following research question is developed: In what way are specific sectors of the domestic stock market financially influenced by Terrorism? Since it was not clear which sectors were positively or negatively influenced by a terrorist attack and how long it takes for the stock market to recuperate from a terrorist attack, I conducted a case study. I examined two terrorist attack cases: The terrorist attacks of 9.11.2001 in New York and the terrorist attacks of 11.13.2015 in Paris.
