Research results. Stock market is one of the most efficient ways of mobilization and allocation of capital. It plays an important role in acceleration of economic development of literally every country in the world. At the same time, unordered and inconsistent development of Ukrainian stock market as well as difficult economic and political country situation led to its inability to fully serve its functions which are inherent for efficient stock markets of developed countries.

Advanced statistical analysis confirms hypothesis that shadow economy volume and shadow economy schemes existence on Ukrainian stock market are considerable factors of stock market misbalances. This confirms the necessity to take into account shadow economy schemes while evaluating the influence of Ukrainian stock market misbalances on country economic development.

Conducted scenario analysis of positive and negative stock market misbalances influence in different countries on their economic development proved its asymmetrical feature. Accordingly, while developing stock market misbalances overcoming measures one should consider the its direction and deepening risks both in the short and middle run. Research results can be used for supporting managerial decisions of stock market regulatory entities, developing of state policy and strategic perspectives aimed on stimulation of future development and efficiency enhancement of Ukrainian stock market for the accommodation of gradual decrease of Ukrainian shadow economy volume, economic safety increase and economic development.

At the time, significant share of shadow economy enhanced the negative effect mentioned above misbalances on economic development (welfare) of Ukraine. Conducted analysis revealed that misbalances overcoming measures should address first causes of its emergence, in essence immature stock market infrastructure, reserved market information, absence of investor rights ensuring, and inconsistency of Ukrainian stock market regulatory laws with EU standards. There measures will facilitate Ukrainian stock market development, its efficiency increase, considerable decrease of shadow economy opportunities, active involvement of internal private investors through banking system, risk of significant misbalances decrease. This altogether will finally have positive influence on economic safety and country economic development.
