In line with this reality, Djajadikerta, Trireksani and Appiagyei (2022) examine the extraordinary situation due to COVID-19 and examine the behavioural patterns of investors by way of the level of trading activities on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) around the releases of crucial information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
