    • 2003, Jean-Philippe Bouchaud, Marc Potters, Theory of Financial Risk and Derivative Pricing:
      This is at variance with empirical observation: the distributions of absolute stock price changes are rather symmetrical: if anything, large negative draw-downs are more frequent than large positive draw-ups.
    • 2012, Ms Gunilla Sundström, Professor Erik Hollnagel, Governance and Control of Financial Systems:
      The bubbles themselves (massive 'draw-ups') are similarly associated with various positive feedback mechanisms that generate a faster-than-exponential regime of growth that is ultimately unsustainable (Jiang et al., 2010).
    • 2015, Kian Guan Lim, Probability and Finance Theory:
      Next we consider different continuous time as well as discrete jump stochastic price processes that differ from that of a Brownian motion without drift.
