NEW STATISTICAL PROCEDURES FOR ANALYSING DEPENDENCE IN NON-GAUSSIAN TIME SERIES DATA

Grant number: DP0664121

Abstract

In the economic, finance and business spheres, statistical data is often discrete, binary, strictly positive, or characterized by an uneven distribution of values above and below the average. Prominent examples are the high frequency financial data that have become accessible with the computerization of financial markets, including the number of trades in successive time intervals, the direction of price changes, the time between trades and the return on a financial asset over short periods.
