Abstract [en]

Volatility clustering is a stylized fact common in nance. Large changes in prices tend to cluster whereas small changes behave likewise. The higher the volatility of a market, the more risky it is said to be and vice versa . Below, we study volatility clustering using an agent-based model. This model looks at the reaction of agents as a result of the variation of asset prices. This is due to the irregular switching of agents between fundamentalist and chartist behaviors generating a time varying volatility. Switching depends on the performances of the various strategies. The expectations of the excess returns of the agents (fundamentalists and chartists) are heterogenous.
