Flu Research
Do Stock Markets Catch the Flu?

In fact, this winter, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported some of the highest levels of influenza in several years.

In fact, stock market trading activity decreases when flu incidence is high, according to a new study by John Wald, professor of finance in the UTSA College of Business.
