While there are many ways to conceive of noise trading, it pays to look closely at the definition of noise traders used in the Shleifer model. Recall that there are only two types of investors (or traders) in this model: arbitrageurs and noise traders. Each type will form expectations about the subsequent price of the unsafe asset. No one has any interest in asset prices beyond the beginning of next period because, by assumption, no one lives more than two periods and there are no bequests to future generations.
