We study a large financial market where the discounted asset prices are modeled by martingale random fields. This approach allows the treatment of both the cases of a market with a countable amount of assets and of a market with a continuum amount. We discuss conditions for these markets to be complete and we study the minimal variance hedging problem both in the case of full and partial information. An explicit representation of the minimal variance hedging portfolio is suggested. Techniques of stochastic differentiation are applied to achieve the main results. Examples of large market models with a countable number of assets are considered according to the literature and an example of market model with a continuum of assets is taken from the bond market.
