In this paper we present a continuous time dynamical model of heterogeneous agents interacting in a financial market where transactions are cleared by a market maker. The market is composed of fundamentalist, trend following and contrarian agents who process market information with different time delays. Each class of investors is characterized by path dependent risk aversion. We also allow for the possibility of evolutionary switching between trend following and contrarian strategies. We find that the system shows periodic, quasi-periodic and chaotic dynamics as well as synchronization between technical traders. Furthermore, the model is able to generate time series of returns that exhibit statistical properties similar to those of the S&P 500 index, which is characterized by excess kurtosis, volatility clustering and long memory.
In recent years there has been a growing disaffection with the standard paradigm of efficient markets and rational expectations. In an efficient market, asset prices are the outcome of the trading of rational agents, who forecast the expected price by exploiting all the available information and know that other traders are rational. This implies that prices must equal the fundamental values and therefore changes in prices are only caused by changes in the fundamental. In real markets, however, traders have different information on traded assets and process information differently, therefore the assumption of homogeneous rational traders may not be appropriate. The efficient market hypothesis motivates the use of random walk increments in financial time series modeling: if news about fundamentals are normally distributed, the returns on an asset will be normal as well. However, the random walk assumption does not allow the replication of some stylized facts of real financial markets, such as volatility clustering, excess kurtosis, autocorrelation in square and absolute returns, bubbles and crashes. Recently a large number of models that take into account heterogeneity in financial markets have been proposed. Contributions to this literature include , , , ,  and . Ref.  analyzes a market composed of a continuum of fundamentalists who show delays in information processing. These models allow for the formation of speculative bubbles, which may be triggered by news about fundamentals and reinforced by technical trading. Since different investors interact with one another in a nonlinear fashion, these models are capable of generating stable equilibria, periodic, quasi-periodic dynamics and strange attractors. This paper builds on the model of Ref. , which is inspired by the models of thermodynamics of Refs. ,  and  and analyzes a financial market only composed of fundamentalist investors who trade according to the mispricing of the asset with delays uniformly distributed from initial to current time. We generalize  by introducing a continuum of technical traders who behave as either trend followers or contrarians and a switching rule between these technical trading rules. We will analyze how the interaction of different types of investors with path dependent risk aversions determines the dynamics and the statistical properties of the system as key parameters are changed.
