Time Series Momentum Predictability via Dynamic Binary Classification*

  title={Time Series Momentum Predictability via Dynamic Binary Classification*},
  author={Bruno P. C. Levy and Insper and Hedibert Freitas Lopes},
Time series momentum strategies are widely applied in the quantitative financial industry and its academic research has grown rapidly since the work of Moskowitz, Ooi, and Pedersen (2012). However, trading signals are usually obtained via simple observation of past return measurements. In this article we study the benefits of incorporating dynamic econometric models to sequentially learn the time-varying importance of different look-back periods for individual assets. By the use of a dynamic… Expand

Demystifying Time-Series Momentum Strategies: Volatility Estimators, Trading Rules and Pairwise Correlations∗
Motivated by the recent asset pricing literature that examines the effect of frictions on asset prices, we examine the effect of volatility estimation error, trading rule and pairwise correlations onExpand
Time Series Momentum and Macroeconomic Risk
The time series momentum strategy has been shown to deliver consistent profitability over a long time horizon. Funds pursuing these strategies are now a component of many institutional portfolios,Expand
Dynamic Ordering Learning in Multivariate Forecasting
In many fields where the main goal is to produce sequential forecasts for decisionmaking problems, the good understanding of the contemporaneous relations among different series is crucial for theExpand
Time-series momentum in nearly 100 years of stock returns
We document strong time-series momentum effects in individual stocks in the US markets from 1927 to 2017. Time-series momentum is not specific to sub-periods, firm sizes, formation- andExpand
Empirical Asset Pricing Via Machine Learning
Improved risk premium measurement through machine learning simplifies the investigation into economic mechanisms of asset pricing and highlights the value of machine learning in financial innovation. Expand

Momentum Strategies in Futures Markets and Trend-following Funds
In this paper we rigorously establish a relationship between time-series momentum strategies in futures markets and commodity trading advisors (CTAs), a subgroup of the hedge fund universe that hasExpand
Understanding Momentum and Reversal
Stock momentum, long-term reversal, and other past return characteristics that predict future returns also predict future realized betas, suggesting these characteristics capture time-varying riskExpand
The Economic Value of Predicting Stock Index Returns and Volatility
In this paper, we analyze the economic value of predicting index returns as well as volatility. On the basis of fairly simple linear models, estimated recursively, we produce genuine out-of-sampleExpand
Time Series Momentum
We document significant ‘‘time series momentum’’ in equity index, currency, commodity, and bond futures for each of the 58 liquid instruments we consider. We find persistence in returns for one to 12Expand
