Can behavioral finance models account for historical asset prices?

Rhys ap Gwilym

No E2009/17, Cardiff Economics Working Papers from Cardiff University, Cardiff Business School, Economics Section

Abstract: I construct a behavioral model of asset pricing in which agents choose whether to base their expectations on chartist or fundamental forecasts. I simulate the model in order to test its efficacy in explaining the moments and time series properties of the FTSE All-Share index, and find that the model cannot be rejected as the data generating process.
