Self-averaging phenomenon and multiscaling in Hong Kong stock market

  • Bershadskii, A.

Abstract

It is shown that a natural self-averaging phenomenon can transform the initially (on a microscopic level) lognormal distribution into bi-lognormal one. Comparison with Hong Kong stock market (Hang Seng index) is used to show that this mechanism is working for different time lags and, therefore, the mechanism can be a reason for profound multiscaling observed for this system.
