Motivated by an equilibrium problem, we establish the existence of a solution for a family of Markovian backward stochastic differential equations with quadratic nonlinearity and discontinuity in Z. Using unique continuation and backward uniqueness, we show that the set of discontinuity has measure zero. In a continuous-time stochastic model of an endowment economy, we prove the existence of an incomplete Radner equilibrium with nondegenerate endogenous volatility.
