In 2001 R.Cont stated in "Empirical properties of asset returns: stylized facts and statistical issues" article a set of stylized statistical facts which are common to a wide set of financial assets. The set was later reproduced with minor changes in "Encyclopedia of Quantitative Finance" in 2010.
Here is the set:
- Absence of autocorrelations
- Heavy tails
- Gain/Loss assymetry
- Aggregational Gaussianity (later renamed to "Aggregational normality")
- Intermittency (later excluded from the set)
- Volatility clustering
- Conditional heavy tails
- Slow decay of autocorrelation in absolute returns
- Leverage effect
- Volume/volatility correlation
- Assymetry in time scales
Have any new candidates into the stylized facts set been discovered since then?
