Anyone successfully used the ADF or the Philips Peron test to look for trends in currency markets? It looks promising but also promises a steep learning curve. It's based on a statistical data analysis, whereas many technical trading rules are rules of thumb, or magic.

Well you still would need some model to make some kind of prediction.

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

If you can accurately determine whether there's an underlying trend or just random variation, then your prediction is that prices will continue in the direction of the trend. Once the analysis shows the trend is no longer statistically probable, you close your position.

I have to admit I haven't looked into it detailed enough in order to justify a detailed response.
That was just a gut feeling, namely that you would need for example a neural network at some point of going from API data to a time & order price.

I don't know if I have the nerve to look into it, but thanks.
If you know of any further information on the subject I will appreciate it!  Smiley

Ah, see what you mean I think. I would n't see this being used for HFT, just to give long term traders more certainty about when to trade.
