#9 Answer: Wavelets and financial time series (WD 7.6 #26)

The question was:

> Question: My interest in wavelets is as a tool in helping to forecast
> financial time series. My primary question is whether there is
> software available to automate the calculation of wavelets for a long
> time series on a walk-forward basis, one day at a time, such that the
> wavelet calculation takes advantage only of current and past data and
> no future data. I've experimented with TimeStat at bit, which can

> only manually - one day at a time. Can anyone steer me to pertinent

The answer is:

There is an article titled "Making Wavelets in Finance" written by
Mark J. Jensen, Ph.D which maybe of interest. The article is
in a newsletter called "Financial Engineering News" (August 1997
Volume 1 Number 1) and maybe obtained from their web site:
