The correlation function of a financial index of the New York stock exchange, the S&P 500, is analyzed at 1 min intervals over the 13-year period, Jan 84 -- Dec 96. We quantify the correlations of the absolute values of the index increment. We find that these correlations can be described by two different power laws with a crossover time t_\times\approx 600 min. Detrended fluctuation analysis gives exponents $\alpha_1=0.66$ and $\alpha_2=0.93$ for $t t_\times$ respectively. Power spectrum… Expand

Long-range correlation and predictability of Chinese stock prices
Abstract It is well known that the price time series of an efficient market display a Brownian motion. In such a case the best prediction of a future price is the last-known price thus no arbitrageExpand
Indication of multiscaling in the volatility return intervals of stock markets.
This work investigates intraday data sets of 500 stocks and finds that the cumulative distribution of return intervals has systematic deviations from scaling, and investigates the moments in the range 10<tau< or =100, which suggest that the return interval distribution exhibits multiscaling behavior due to the nonlinear correlations in the original volatility.

Measuring long-range correlations in news flow intensity time series
We consider the flow intensity of economic and financial news taken from a nine-month period of 2015. This data is found to be well approximated by a persistent self-affine walk. It is characterizedExpand
Statistical regularities in the return intervals of volatility
Abstract. We discuss recent results concerning statistical regularities in the return intervals of volatility in financial markets. In particular, we show how the analysis of volatility returnExpand
Fluctuations and their correlations in econophysics
We address a current question in econophysics: Are fluctuations in economic indices correlated? To this end, we analyze 1-minute data on a stock index, the Standard and Poor index of the 500 largestExpand
Comparison between volatility return intervals of the S&P 500 index and two common models
Abstract. We analyze the S&P 500 index data for the 13-year period, from January 1, 1984 to December 31, 1996, with one data point every 10 min. For this database, we study the distribution andExpand
How long is the memory of the US stock market
The Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH), one of the most important hypothesis in financial economics, argues that return rates have no memory (correlation) which implies that agents cannot makeExpand
Scaling and correlation in financial time series
We discuss the results of three recent phenomenological studies focussed on understanding the distinctive statistical properties of nancial time series { (i) The probability distribution of stockExpand
Scaling and memory of intraday volatility return intervals in stock markets.
Study of the return interval tau between price volatilities that are above a certain threshold q for 31 intraday data sets finds that return interval records, in addition to having short-term correlations as demonstrated by Pq(tau/tau0), have long-term correlated exponents similar to that of volatility records.

Multi-scale correlations in different futures markets
Abstract.In the present work we investigate the multiscale nature of the correlations for high frequency data (1 min) in different futures markets over a period of two years, starting on the 1st ofExpand


An Investigation of Transactions Data for NYSE Stocks
Using transactions data, the behavior of returns and characteristics of trades at the micro level is examined. A minute-by-minute market return series is formed and tested for normality andExpand
Scaling behavior in economics: The problem of quantifying company growth
Inspired by work of both Widom and Mandelbrot, we analyze the Computstat database comprising all publicly traded United States manufacturing companies in the years 1974–1993. We find that theExpand
Stock market dynamics and turbulence: parallel analysis of fluctuation phenomena
Abstract We report analogies and differences between the fluctuations in an economic index and the fluctuations in velocity of a fluid in a fully turbulent state. Specifically, we systematicallyExpand
A long memory property of stock market returns and a new model
Abstract A ‘long memory’ property of stock market returns is investigated in this paper. It is found that not only there is substantially more correlation between absolute returns than returnsExpand
Scaling behaviour in the dynamics of an economic index
THE large-scale dynamical properties of some physical systems depend on the dynamical evolution of a large number of nonlinearly coupled subsystems. Examples include systems that exhibitExpand

Long memory is defined as a series having a slowly declining correlogram or, equivalently, an infinite spectrum at zero frequency. Fractional integrated processes have such properties but here it isExpand
