Statistical Properties, Dynamic Conditional Correlation, Scaling Analysis of High-Frequency Intraday Stock Returns: Evidence from Dow-Jones and Nasdaq Indices

  title={Statistical Properties, Dynamic Conditional Correlation, Scaling Analysis of High-Frequency Intraday Stock Returns: Evidence from Dow-Jones and Nasdaq Indices},
  author={Thomas C. Chiang and Hai-Chin Yu and Ming-Chya Wu},
This paper investigates statistical properties of high-frequency intraday stock returns across various frequencies. Both time series and panel data are employed to explore probability distribution properties, autocorrelations, dynamic conditional correlations, and scaling analysis in the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and the NASDAQ intraday returns across 10-minute, 30-monute, 60-minute, 120-minute, and 390-minute frequencies from August 1, 1997, to December 31, 2003. The evidence shows…

Realized Distributions of Dynamic Conditional Correlation and Volatility Thresholds in the Crude Oil, Gold, and Dollar/Pound Currency Markets
This chapter proposes a modeling framework for the study of co-movements in price changes among crude oil, gold, and dollar/pound currencies that are conditional on volatility regimes.
A Double-Layer Neural Network Framework for High-Frequency Forecasting
A novel double-layer neural (DNN) network with links specially designed to capture dependence structures among stock returns within different business sectors is proposed for high-frequency forecasting, which outperforms benchmark methods in terms of the prediction accuracy and returns.
Prediction of securities' behavior using a multi-level artificial neural network with extra inputs between layers
The possibilities of predicting changes in stock pricing at a high frequency applying a multi-level neural network without the use of recurrent neurons or any other time series are discussed.


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 and
A Theory of Intraday Patterns: Volume and Price Variability
This article develops a theory in which concentrated-trading patterns arise endogenously as a result of the strategic behavior of liquidity traders and informed traders. Our results provide a partial
Feedback Traders and Stock Return Autocorrelations: Evidence from a Century of Daily Data
The authors investigate whether the degree of autocorrelation shown by high frequency stock returns changes with volatility. This may result from nontrading effects, feedback trading strategies, or
Asymmetric Price and Volatility Adjustments in Emerging Asian Stock Markets
This paper tests the hypothesis that stock returns in emerging stock markets adjust asymmetrically to past information. The evidence suggests that both the conditional mean and the conditional

This article explores the fundamental factors that affect cross-country stock return correlations. Using transactions data from 1988 to 1992, the authors construct overnight and intraday returns for
