For large stocks, we find that whether a trade is a purchase or a sale and whether it is a contrarian or a momentum trade does not play a role in the relation between volatility and trading. It is the trading of informed institutional investors against non-informed individual investors that drives volatility and produces a negative volatility effect. We further show that net foreign trading has a non-decreasing impact on volatility.
