# Dynamics of the market states in the space of correlation matrices with applications to financial markets

@inproceedings{Pharasi2021DynamicsOT, title={Dynamics of the market states in the space of correlation matrices with applications to financial markets}, author={Hirdesh K. Pharasi and Suchetana Sadhukhan and Parisa Majari and Anirban Chakraborti and Thomas H. Seligman}, year={2021} }

The concept of states of financial markets based on correlations has gained increasing attention during the last 10 years. We propose to retrace some important steps up to 2018, and then give a more detailed view of recent developments that attempt to make the use of this more practical. Finally, we try to give a glimpse to the future proposing the analysis of trajectories in correlation matrix space directly or in terms of symbolic dynamics as well as attempts to analyze the clusters that make… Expand

The so-called power map is used and its nonlinearity breaks the degeneracy of the zero eigenvalues and the so-emerging spectra to correlations and this sensitivity will be demonstrated for uncorrelated and correlated Wishart ensembles. Expand

Identifying States of a Financial Market

- Computer Science, Economics

- 2012

A definition of state is proposed for a financial market and it is found that a wide variety of characteristic correlation structure patterns exist in the observation time window, and that they can be classified into several typical “market states”. Expand
