Abstract. An attempt is made to treat company shares in the stock market as a dynamical eco-system using a modified three-dimensional form of the Lotka-Volterra model. Stability analysis is performed and numerical simulations of parameter values are used to investigate the dynamics of the system. This study shows that varying parameter values can affect whether the system remains stable or experiences bifurcations.
