Contributions of Computational Cognitive Modeling to the Understanding of the Financial Markets

  title={Contributions of Computational Cognitive Modeling to the Understanding of the Financial Markets},
  author={Davi D'Andr{\'e}a Baccan},
The financial markets are complex, dynamic, and strategic socio-economic systems in which a great number of heterogeneous market participants interact by essentially buying and selling assets of different types. The financial markets such as stock markets serve many functions. For instance, the financial markets help market participants and companies in improving the capital allocation process. Additionally, the behavior of the financial markets is assumed to be an important gauge for helping…

Cognitive model of the national financial market: creating process and prospects for assessing the security of its functioning
The subject of the research is the Russian financial market. The aim of the study is to develop a cognitive model of the Russian financial market to assess the security of its functioning. The


The Real Effects of Financial Markets
A large amount of activity in the financial sector occurs in secondary financial markets, where securities are traded among investors without capital flowing to firms. The stock market is the

The predictive power of zero intelligence in financial markets.
This work uses data from the London Stock Exchange to test a simple model in which minimally intelligent agents place orders to trade at random and demonstrates the existence of simple laws relating prices to order flows and suggests there are circumstances where the strategic behavior of agents may be dominated by other considerations.
Adaptive Markets and the New World Order
The traditional investment paradigm is based on several key assumptions including rational investors, stationary probability laws, and a positive linear relationship between risk and expected return
Agent-Based Approach to Investors' Behavior and Asset Price Fluctuation in Financial Markets
A virtual financial market that contains two types of investors: fundamentalists and non-fundamentalists is built and results indicate that the non-Fundamentalists affect the traded prices and obtain excess returns also in real markets.

The Efficient Markets Hypothesis is described and how this controversial idea has stimulated a number of new directions of research, some focusing on more elaborate mathematical models that are capable of rationalizing the empirical facts, others taking a completely different tack in rejecting rationality altogether.
Scaling and criticality in a stochastic multi-agent model of a financial market
Financial prices have been found to exhibit some universal characteristics that resemble the scaling laws characterizing physical systems in which large numbers of units interact. This raises the
Reconciling Efficient Markets with Behavioral Finance: The Adaptive Markets Hypothesis
The battle between proponents of the Efficient Markets Hypothesis and champions of behavioral finance has never been more pitched, and there is little consensus as to which side is winning or what
