The impact of the investor sentiment on China’s capital market price volatility is concerned underthe perspective of the behavioral finance. Firstly, in terms of the existing methods of establishingthe investor sentiment index, the composite investor sentiment index which include six indicators(five objective indicators and a subjective indicator) are obtained. Secondly, VMD-LSTM (VariationalMode Decomposition and Long Short Term Memory) hybrid neural network model is usedto decompose and restructure the investor sentiment index and the Shanghai Security ExchangeComposite Index (SSEC) into the short-term, medium-term and long-term trend. Each trend istrained to obtain the forecasting results in three different time scales, and then to achieve the finalpredicting results by superimposing the output of each trend. Furthermore, compare with otherprediction methods, the model can indeed improve the overall predicting accuracy. Finally,GARCH model and the co-integration error regression model are used to discuss the fluctuationcorrelation and VAR (Vector Auto-regression) models are established to analyze the causalitybetween the stock market indices and the investor sentiment index.
