Title:Heterogeneous Trading Strategies with Adaptive Fuzzy Actor-Critic Reinforcement Learning: A behavioral approach Author(s):BEKIROS, Stelios D.Date:2010Citation:
- Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, 2010, 34, 6, 1153-1170
Type:ArticleAbstract:The present study addresses the learning mechanism of boundedly rational agents in the dynamic and noisy environment of financial markets. The main objective is the development of a system that “decodes” the knowledge-acquisition ...
Title:Fuzzy Adaptive Decision-making for Boundedly Rational Traders in Speculative Stock Markets Author(s):BEKIROS, Stelios D.Date:2010Citation:
- European Journal of Operational Research, 2010, 202, 1, 285-293
Type:ArticleAbstract:The development of new models that would enhance predictability for time series with dynamic time-varying, nonlinear features is a major challenge for speculators. Boundedly rational investors called “chartists” use advanced ...
Title:Structural Vector Autoregressions with Nonnormal Residuals Author(s):LANNE, Markku; LUETKEPOHL, HelmutDate:2010Citation:
- Journal of Business & Economic Statistics, 2010, 28, 1, 159-168
Type:ArticleAbstract:In structural vector autoregressive (SVAR) modeling, sometimes the identifying restrictions are insufficient for a unique specification of all shocks. In this paper it is pointed out that specific distributional assumptions ...

- Applied Economics, 2010, 42, 7, 851-864
Type:ArticleAbstract:During the last decades Norwegian exporters have-despite various forms of exchange rate targeting-faced a rather volatile exchange rate which may have influenced their behaviour. Recently, the shift to inflation targeting ...
Title:Structural Vector Autoregressions with Markov Switching Author(s):LUETKEPOHL, Helmut; LANNE, Markku; MACIEJOWSKA, KatarzynaDate:2010Citation:
- Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control, 2010, 34, 2, 121-131
Type:ArticleAbstract:It is argued that in structural vector autoregressive (SVAR) analysis a Markov regime switching (MS) property can be exploited to identify shocks if the reduced form error covariance matrix varies across states. The model ...

- Review of Economic Design, 2010, 14, 01-feb, 75-93
Type:ArticleAbstract:We propose a stylized model of a problem-solving organization whose internal communication structure is given by a fixed network. Problems arrive randomly anywhere in this network and must find their way to their respective ...

- Journal of Forecasting, 2010, 29, 1-2, 109-131
Type:ArticleAbstract:In this paper we propose a monthly measure for the euro area gross domestic product (GDP) based on a small-scale factor model for mixed-frequency data, featuring two factors: the first is driven by hard data, whereas the ...
