Patterns of Technical Analysis – Do They Work?

Seven years ago I tried to reproduce the results of "Foundations of Technical Analysis: Computational Algorithms, Statistical Inference, and Empirical Implementation" by Lo, Mamaysky and Wang with more recent data than they used. Lo et al come to the conclusion that the chart patterns are statistically significant (which does not yet mean their practical usability). My results shows that there is no statistical significance (anymore). Continue reading "Patterns of Technical Analysis – Do They Work?"
