This chapter presents a behavioral-based model for studying asset price bubbles and trading volume based on heterogeneous beliefs generated by agents' overconfidence. It describes the explicit links between the model's parameter values, such as trading cost and information, and the behavior of equilibrium prices and trading volume. The model can be used to analyze speculative trading as well as the links between asset prices, trading volume, and price volatility.

Keywords:   asset price bubbles, trading volume, overconfidence, equilibrium prices, speculative trading, asset prices, price volatility
