Modeling share price evolution as a continuous time random walk (CTRW) with non-independent price changes and waiting times
AbstractA theory which describes the share price evolution at financial markets as a continuous time random walk has been generalized in order to take into account the dependence of waiting times t on price returns x. A joint probability density function φX,T(x,t), which uses the concept of a Lévy stable distribution, is worked out. The evolution equation is formulated and it is shown that the process is non-Markovian. Finally, the theory is fitted to market data.
