Abstract

Financial time series typically exhibit strong fluctuations that cannot be described by a Gaussian distribution. In recent empirical studies of stock market indices it was examined whether the distribution P(r) of returns r(tau) after some time tau can be described by a (truncated) Levy-stable distribution L_{alpha}(r) with some index 0 2, namely beyond the range of Levy-stable distributions. Our results are in agreement with both empirical studies and reconcile the apparent disagreement between their results.
