Economic and financial theories have widely used the assumption that agents behave rationally. Such an assumption has failed to explain some properties observed in financial markets such as (i) the excessive volume traded [see Odean (1998b)], (ii) underreaction or overreaction of market participants [see Debondt and Thaler (1985)], and (iii ) the excessive volatility observed in financial markets [see Shiller (1981,1989)].
