Causal dependency in extreme returns

Krzysztof Echaust


Modelling of extreme price movements is one of the greatest challenges to risk managers. Extreme Value Theory provides useful and natural tools to analyze a distribution of such events but they are unable to predict the future behavior of extreme returns and their consequences. On the other hand we know that the sequence of extrema behavior, similar to volatility, exhibits long term memory. We have foundnew property of that sequence on the capital markets, what could be useful in construction of a predictive model of extrema. We argue that in the blocks of returns shorter than quarterly, returns maxima cause minima but it is not a common inverse causal dependency.
