Abstract: 

We analyze the problem of extreme events for financial time series and models. The approach will be different according the nature of the data available. This means that for high-frequency data a micoscopic approach (for which the continuous tuime random walk is a good candidate) is needed; while for lower frequency data one can rely on the traditional approach based on diffusion equations.
