  title={Patterns, Trends and Predictions in Stock Market Indices and Foreign Currency Exchange Rates},
  author={Marcel Ausloos and Kristinka Ivanova},
  journal={arXiv: Condensed Matter},
Specialized topics on financial data analysis from a numerical and physical point of view are discussed. They pertain to the analysis of crash prediction in stock market indices and to the persistence or not of coherent and random sequences in fluctuations of foreign exchange currency rates. A brief historical introduction to crashes is given, including recent observations on the DJIA and the S & P500. Daily data of the DAX index are specifically used for illustration. The method for… 
The Co-Movement Connection Between The Gdp And The Main Stock Market Index. The Cases Of Usa And Romania
A recurring problem among economists is that of the connection supposed to exist between the Gross Domestic Product and the main stock market index. Several studies have been conducted, trying to
Stock market crashes have been a constant subject of interest among capital market researchers. Crashes’ behavior has been largely studied, but the problem that remained unsolved until recently, was
A Bayesian Learning Approach to Modeling Pseudoreaction Networks for Complex Reacting Systems: Application to the Mild Visbreaking of Bitumen
A data-mining and Bayesian learning approach is used to model the reaction network of a low-temperature visbreaking process for field upgrading of oil sands bitumen and the final reaction network model was compared to the anticipated reaction netwo...


Financial Anti-Bubbles Log-Periodicity in Gold and Nikkei Collapses
We propose that the herding behavior of traders leads not only to speculative bubbles with accelerating over-valuations of financial markets possibly followed by crashes, but also to "anti-bubbles"
How the financial crash of October 1997 could have been predicted
Abstract:From the analysis of (closing value) stock market index like the Dow Jones Industrial average and the S&P500 it is possible to observe the precursor of a so-called crash. This is shown on
False Euro (FEUR) exchange rate correlated behaviors and investment strategy
Abstract:We have searched for correlations and anticorrelations with respect to currencies as CHF, DKK, JPY, and USD in order to understand the EUR behavior. In order to do so we have invented a
A statistical analysis of log-periodic precursors to financial crashes*
The evidence of log-periodic precursors to financial crashes is considered, the claim that two separate mechanisms are needed to explain the frequency distribution of draw downs in the S&P 500 is examined, and the evidence supporting this claim is found to be unconvincing.
Significance of Log-Periodic Precursors to Financial Crashes
We clarify the status of log-periodicity associated with speculative bubbles preceding financial crashes. In particular, we address Feigenbaum's [2001] criticism and show how it can be rebuked.
Stock Market Crashes, Precursors and Replicas
We present an analysis of the time behavior of the S&P 500 (Standard and Poors) New York stock exchange index before and after the October 1987 market crash and identify precursory patterns as well
The Black-Scholes option pricing problem in mathematical finance : generalization and extensions for a large class of stochastic processes
The ability to price risks and devise optimal investment strategies in the presence of an uncertain "random" market is the cornerstone of modern finance theory. We first consider the simplest such
Scaling behavior in economics: I Epirical results for company growth
We address the question of the growth of firm size. To this end, we analyze the Compustat data base comprising all publicly-traded United States manufacturing firms within the years 1974-1993. We
