Shanghai Composite index and its dividend payments was selected to conduct Right-Tailed Supremum Augmented Dickey-Fuller Test. This test detects the structural change in autoregressive process. Most of the analyzed indirect signs of bubble were detected in the considered time period. In addition, an empirical test also confirmed the existence of a rational bubble in the China’s stock market.
