Project title: "The herding behavior on financial markets: a game theoretical approach and empirical evidence"

Project description (abstract): This project is designed to address one of the most significant behavioral biases, if considering its impact on market efficiency and asset pricing. Our aim is to primarily investigate the incidence and dynamic of herding behavior on European stock markets and to assess its impact on market volatility. This preliminary investigation will be then followed by the construction of a game theoretical informational herding model. More specifically, our objectives are systematized as follows:

  1. The empirical investigation of herding behavior for individual and institutional investors
  2. The assessment of the impact of herding behavior on stock market volatility
  3. The design of a game theoretical model for herding behavior

Research team:

  • Angela FILIP
  • Cristian LITAN (director)
  • Andreea PECE
  • Miruna POCHEA
  • Anita PLEȘOIANU
  • Adrian ZOICAȘ-IENCIU

Expected results:

  1. Each member of the project will attend at least two international conferences over the entire period (one conference/year) with a special emphasis on choosing relevant conferences abroad.
  2. Our objective is to publish at least two scientific papers indexed in relevant ISI journals and four papers indexed in highly visible BDI journals published by Taylor and Francis, Willey, etc.
  3. The organization of a workshop covering theoretical and empirical results related with priority to herding behavior, game theory, behavioral finance, stock markets.
