Synced Delineators: Postive Trend Is Strengthening

March 20, 2012 by CalConfidence   Comments (0)

In the midst of a fantastic 2012 run for the US financial markets, there are many questions being floated around about what is causing it, when it will end, who is causing it, etc.  Just turn on Bloomberg or CNBC during the day and you can hear a myriad of questions being asked.  As a user of HFT Alert's Delineator and Accumulator software, I have enjoyed wondrous laughs as uncertainty is driven to the masses through broadcast television.  I let the J. Paulson's, Huge Hendry's, and Whitney Tilson's of the world worry about why and what.  For me, I'm concerned with the base of the market itself.  We have a market of stocks, not a stock market.  Understanding the base sentiment of the participants is my holy grail.  After years of trading and struggling to produce a top quality product, I've discovered the power of this software created by HFT Alert.

Bank of Mauritius Cuts Benchmark Rate 50bps to 4.90%

March 19, 2012 by CentralBankNews   Comments (0)

The Bank of Mauritius cut its benchmark interest rate by 50 basis points to 4.90% from 5.40%.  The bank said: "The MPC weighed the risks to the growth and inflation outlook over the policy-relevant horizon and concurred that a cut in the Key Repo Rate was warranted in view of  the  higher  downside risks to the domestic growth outlook compared with the upside risks to the inflation outlook.  The voting pattern was, however, split with regard to the magnitude of the decrease."

Previously the Bank of Mauritius cut the rate by 10 basis points at its December meeting, and last raised its repo rate by 25 basis points to 5.50% at its June meeting, after raising 50 basis points in March this year to 5.25%.  Mauritius reported inflation of 6.2% in February this year, 6.5% in August, 7.2% in March, and 6.8% in February last year, meanwhile the bank expects inflation to decline to around 5.3% by June 2012 and 4.7% by December 2012.  

The Bank revised its forecasts downward slightly and now expects the economy to grow about 3.8% this year (down from 4.1% and 4.6% previous forecasts), having recorded annual GDP growth of 4.4% in 2010.  The Mauritian Rupee (MUR) has weakened about 2% against the US dollar over the past year, with the USDMUR exchange rate trading around 29.1

Published / Preprint: Analysis of stochastic time series in N dimensions in the presence of strong measurement noise

March 19, 2012 by MoneyScience   Comments (0)

An extension and generalization of a recently presented approach for the analysis of Langevin-type stochastic processes in the presence of strong measurement noise is presented. For a stochastic process in N dimensions which is superimposed with strong, exponentially correlated, Gaussian distributed, measurement noise it is possible to extract the strength and the correlation functions of the noise as well as polynomial approximations of the drift and diffusion functions of the underlying...
