Crowd Dynamics in Financial Markets (CrowdingFinance)
The aim of this project is to examine links between crowd thinking and financial markets. This is done in a series of subprojects focusing in particular on automated trading and the links between popular (literary) representations of crowds and financial markets, on the one hand, and scholarly accounts of markets, on the other.
The project contributes to existing research within social studies of finance and the sociology of crowds, but it also invites market professionals, scholars and observers of financial markets to reflect on the use of crowd psychology and its possible performative effects.
