Title:

Forecasting in financial markets: reality or illusion?

Abstract:

A discussion of the idiosyncrasies of financial data provides the basis for the modeling and forecasting of financial time series. Though numerous studies have focused on the forecasting of expected returns with relative success, I show that focusing on other measures of returns like the high/low return interval is a more profitable exercise. As an example, I discuss a trading strategy based on the high/low returns.
