Impact of a discretization unit on binary representation of exchange rate

Michał Stasiak , Aleksandra Wójcicka-Wójtowicz


An exchange rate of a currency pair can be shown in binary representation. The algorithm of binarization depends on the conversion of an exchange rate represented by tick data into a corresponding binary string. Each increase of an exchange rate, by a given discretization unit, is attributed a binary value of 1. In turn, 0 is assigned to each exchange rate decrease. Properties and a character of exchange rate in binary representation, e.g. the impact of random fluctuations (noise), the level of interdependencies between current changes and historical data, depend on an assumed discretization unit. The research presents a statistic analysis of a currency pair exchange rate in a binary representation, for various discretization units. The analysis was conducted to test the possibility of using the binary representation to build prediction systems based on a state model for binary representation (SMBR). For the analysis tick data of AUD/NZD pair was used in the period of 2012-2016.
