Estimators of long range dependence : a survey of finite samples and robustness
In traditional financial theory the returns of prices are assumed to be independent of each other, they are said to have short memory. However, it has been shown that returns in many cases are
Rescaled Range Analysis and Detrended Fluctuation Analysis: Finite Sample Properties and Confidence Intervals
We focus on finite sample properties of two mostly used methods of Hurst exponent H estimation—rescaled range analysis (R/S) and detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA). Even though both methods have
R/S analysis and DFA: finite sample properties and confidence intervals
We focus on finite sample properties of two mostly used methods of Hurst exponent H estimation – R/S analysis and DFA. Even though both methods have been widely applied on different types of
Estimation of Hurst exponent revisited
Long-range dependence in returns and volatility of Central European Stock Indices
In the paper, we research on the presence of long-range dependence in returns and volatility of Hungarian (BUX), Czech (PX) and Polish (WIG) stock indices between years 1997 and 2009 with a use of
The Effect of the Underlying Distribution in Hurst Exponent Estimation
It is shown that, under this model, no stocks from S&P500 index show persistent memory, whereas some of them do present anti-persistent memory and most of them present no memory at all.


Abstract. The definitions of fractional Gaussian noise and integrated (or fractionally differenced) series are generalized, and it is shown that the two concepts are equivalent. A new estimator of
Long-Term Memory in Stock Market Prices
A test for long-run memory that is robust to short-range dependence is developed. It is a simple extension of Mandelbrot's "range over standard deviation" or R/S statistic, for which the relevant
Long-term stochastic dependence in financial prices: evidence from the German stock market
A number of authors have argued that financial prices may exhibit hidden long-term dependence. We consider this claim analysing German stock market data. Applying three different concepts for the
Stock market prices and long-range dependence
Using the CRSP (Center for Research in Security Prices) daily stock return data, the question of whether or not actual stock market prices exhibit long-range dependence is revisited and empirical evidence of long- range dependence in stock price returns is found but the evidence is not absolutely conclusive.
Long Memory in Stock-Market Trading Volume
This article examines consistent estimation of the long-memory parameters of stock-market trading volume and volatility. The analysis is carried out in the frequency domain by tapering the data
Scaling in financial prices: I. Tails and dependence
The scaling properties of financial prices raise many questions. To provide background - appropriately so in the first issue of a new journal! - this paper, part I (sections 1 to 3), is largely a
Robustness of the rescaled range R/S in the measurement of noncyclic long run statistical dependence
The rescaled range R(t, s) / S(t, s) is shown by extensive computer simulation to be a very robust statistic for testing the presence of noncyclic long run statistical dependence in records and, in
Real and Spurious Long-Memory Properties of Stock-Market Data
We test for the presence of long memory in daily stock returns and their squares using a robust semiparametric procedure of Lobato and Robinson. Spurious results can be produced by nonstationarity
What color are commodity prices? A fractal analysis
Abstract. Commodity price behavior holds much interest not only because these markets are affected by waves of speculative activity similar to security markets but more so that these commodities are
