Day of the week effect is one of the most important calendar anomalies that have been observed in many stock markets in all over the world with a lot of different results. Stock markets are speculative market, thus, investors are more concerned about which day is the best for the trade. The primary objective of this paper is to find out the significant day of the week effect in the emerging stock market of a developing country like India for the period January 2001 to December 2012. In order to fulfill the objectives of the paper, 5 models have been estimated. In each model risk factor is defined in different ways thereby leading to different results. Empirical results verify that NSE Nifty50 does not depict such day of the week effects on the intraday and inter-day stock returns. While index exhibits Wednesday effect on inter-day return of the index, Monday gives lowest return but maximum volatility. However, in certain cases, Friday also suffers from the lowest return indicating presence of reverse weekend effect in the Indian stock market.
