Shot noise effects occur when smooth but possibly chaotic processes are subject to shocks which, though, may partially fade away on the long run. In a financial context, shot noise effects in the underlying may cause some difficulties when it is coming to pricing associated derivatives or finding hedge strategies against market risks. From a statistical point of view shot noise processes are able to create short- or long-memory effects, depending on how fast jumps fade away. In the talk we present a detailed discussion of these issues with applications to real data.
