Abstract

A Monte Carlo computer simulation model is presented to study the evolution of stock price and the distribution of price fluctuation. The resistance is described by an elastic energy E_e = e cdot x^2 resulting from the price deviation x from an initial value and the momentum trading by the potential energy E_p = - b cdot y in a price gradient y field. The distribution of price fluctuation (P(y)) is symmetric and shows a long time tail compatible over some range with a power-law, P(y) sim y^{-mu} with mu simeq 4 at e = 1.0, , b = 5. The volatility auto-correlation function (c( au)) is positive for several iterations.
