E. risk of default of the counterpart. By this securitization process, the individual risk is reduced through diversification. This creates however a new risk related to the correlation and joint defaults of the different counterparts of the banks. From a modelling point of view, risks have been represented in a continuous way so far. Now, modelling potential losses dynamically and allowing assets to default require the introduction of some processes with jumps. This possibility of default makes the financial market incomplete, the default being typically unhedgeable.

Hence, the validity of the semi-martingale model discussed in the previous section for stock prices: the sum of a martingale and a trend process, which is unknown but assumed to be fairly smooth, continuous and locally of finite variation. 3 Stochastic Volatility and Information Arrival Financial markets go through hectic and calm periods. In hectic markets, the fluctuations in prices are large. In calm markets, price fluctuations tend to be moderate. The simplest representation of the size of fluctuations is volatility, the central quantity in financial markets.
