Ordinal Synchronization and Typical States in High-Frequency Digital Markets

  title={Ordinal Synchronization and Typical States in High-Frequency Digital Markets},
  author={Mario L'opez P'erez and Ricardo Mansilla},
In this paper we show, through the study of ordinal patterns, information theoretic and network measures and clustering algorithms, the presence of typical states in automated high-frequency records during a one-year period in the US stock market, characterized by their degree of centralized or descentralized synchronicity. We also find two whole coherent seasons of highly centralized and descentralized synchronicity, respectively. Keywords— Ordinal Patterns, High-Frequency Trading, Algorithmic… 


High-frequency trading and networked markets
Significance During the last two decades, technological innovation and regulatory requirements have deeply changed the way financial markets work. Today, financial markets are characterized by the
Forbidden patterns, permutation entropy and stock market inefficiency
In this paper we introduce two new quantifiers for the stock market inefficiency: the number of forbidden patterns and the normalized permutation entropy. They are model-independent measures, thus
Forbidden patterns in financial time series.

The appearance of forbidden patterns is studied in different economical indicators such as stock indices, NYSE stocks, and others, to find evidence of deterministic behavior in their evolutions and the rate of appearance is calculated.
Transcripts: an algebraic approach to coupled time series.
This paper revisits the concept of transcript between two symbolic representations, generalize it to N representations, and derive some general properties of ordinal symbolic dynamics, and uses transcripts to define two complexity indicators of coupled dynamics.
Hierarchical structure in financial markets
I find a hierarchical arrangement of stocks traded in a financial market by investigating the daily time series of the logarithm of stock price. The topological space is a subdominant ultrametric
Characterizing stochastic time series with ordinal networks.
It is argued that ordinal networks can detect sudden changes in Earth's seismic activity caused by large earthquakes and be used for estimating the Hurst exponent of time series with accuracy comparable with state-of-the-art methods.
Commodity predictability analysis with a permutation information theory approach
The predictability in commodity markets is analyzed by using a novel approach derived from Information Theory by estimating the permutation entropy and permutation statistical complexity of twenty basic commodity future markets over a period of around 20 years.
Zooming into market states
We analyze the daily stock data of the Nasdaq Composite index in the 22-year period 1992-2013 and identify market states as clusters of correlation matrices with similar correlation structures. We
Information directionality in coupled time series using transcripts.
By generalizing the definition of transcript to ordinal patterns of different lengths, several of the commonly used information directionality measures can be encompassed within the same framework.
Dissecting financial markets: sectors and states
Abstract By analysing a large data set of daily returns with the maximum likelihood data clustering technique, we identify economic sectors as clusters of assets with a similar economic dynamics. The
