Highlights

  • The GameStop story illustrates that fear, greed, and asymmetries of information can cause investors to behave irrationally.
  • Traditional market theories such as the Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH) fall short in providing answers as to why situations like the GameStop incident can arise out of seemingly nowhere.
  • In an effort to better anticipate trends, AlphaSimplex considers Adaptive Market Hypothesis (AMH), an alternative understanding of market dynamics. AMH holds that markets behave like an ecosystem and are governed by the principles of evolutionary biology.
