Dependence structures in financial time series: a chaos-theoretic approach

Wolff, Rodney C. (2004) Dependence structures in financial time series: a chaos-theoretic approach. In Pan, H., Sornette, D., & Kortanek, K. (Eds.) Intelligent Finance - a Convergence of Financial Mathematics with Technical and Fundamental Analysis, 13-14 December 2004, Melbourne.


Of much interest in financial econometrics is the recovery of joint distributional behaviour of collections of contemporaneous financial time series, e.g., two related commodity price series, or two asset returns series. An approach to model their joint behaviour is to use copulae. Essentially, copulae are selected on the basis of a measure of correlation between the two series and are made to match their marginal properties. Of course, generalisations exist for more than two series. A possible limitation of this approach is that only linear correlations between series might be captured. We consider incorporating more general dependence structures, through the use of the correlation integral (as in the BDS test), as a means to refine the choice of candidate copulae in an empirical situation.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
