An efficient capital market is a market where all available information about a security is reflected in its price. Consequently in an efficient market the prices of stocks behave randomly.

A test is nevertheless possible when assumptions are made about the stochastic processes generating the rates of return. Several hypotheses can be formulated about the stochastic return-generating process. The process can follow a one-factor or a two-factor model. Black, Jensen and Scholes 4 in a pioneering paper showed that two-factor-models explain the rates of return on American stock exchanges better than one-factor-models. Elsewhere, however, it was demonstrated that for the Brussels stock exchange a one-factor model appears to capture the return-generating process fairly well.
