Thus, we do not expect prices to be more volatile than the value of the discounted dividend stream. For a formal test of excess volatility we follow the technique in [37]. For each time period we calculate the actual 11 12 Agent Based Computational Economics Agent Based Computational Economics, Figure 1 Price Dynamics in the Benchmark Model Agent Based Computational Economics, Figure 2 Return Autocorrelation in Benchmark Model price Pt , and the fundamental value of discounted divif dend stream, Pt , as in Eq.

In this model each investor has a different number of ex-post observations which he utilizes to estimate the exante distribution. Namely, investor i looks at the set of the m i most recent returns on the stock, and we assume that m i is distributed in the population according to a trun¯ and standard cated normal distribution with average m deviation m (as m Ä 0 is meaningless, the distribution is truncated at m D 0). Figure 8 shows the price pattern of a typical simulation of this model. In this simulation 90% of the investors are RII, and the remaining 10% are heterogeneous EMB ¯ D 40, and m D 10.

We assume that all investors have a power utility function of the form: U(W) D W1 ˛ ; 1 ˛ (2) where ˛ is the risk aversion parameter. This form of utility function implies Constant Relative Risk Aversion (CRRA). We employ the power utility function (Eq. (2)) because the empirical evidence suggests that relative risk aversion is approximately constant (see, for example [8,9,18,20]), and the power utility function is the unique utility function which satisfies the CRRA condition. Another implication of CRRA is that the optimal investment choice is independent of the investment horizon [33,34].
