  • Universal compression algorithms can detect recurring patterns in any type of temporal data—including financial data—for the purpose of compression. The universal algorithms actually find a model of the data that can be used for either compression or prediction. We present a universal Variable Order Markov (VOM) model and use it to test the weak form of the Efficient Market Hypothesis (EMH). The EMH is tested for 12 pairs of international intra-day currency exchange rates for one year series of… CONTINUE READING
