STA Monthly Meeting February 2017 Cycles in Trading, Empirical Mode Decomposition

The concept of cycles is very popular among technical analysts. Books and articles define them in various shapes and lengths. They are also very appealing to investors since they imply the old idea of buying low and selling. Unfortunately, trading is not that easy and in reality, identifying and measuring cycles properly seems to be very hard. Most of the tools suggested fail since asset prices behave non-linear and most of the properties are time depending. This presentation describes a technique to identify cyclical behaviour called Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD).
