The magnitude of a market crash can be predicted

Novak, Serguei ORCID logoORCID: and Beirlant, J. (2006) The magnitude of a market crash can be predicted. Journal of Banking and Finance, 30 (2) . pp. 453-462. ISSN 0378-4266 [Article]


Could the magnitude of the stock market crash of 19.10.1987 be predicted on the base of the data available on the eve of “the black Monday”? How far can the financial market fall, say, once in 40 years? We demonstrate that modern methods of Extreme Value Theory can help in answering these questions.
