Joseph Effect

The HTML to link to this page
 

The Joseph Effect is the idea that movements over time follow statistical trends and cycles more than they occur at random. To determine whether a series of movements is random or part of a trend, the Joseph Effect uses the Hurst component: the Joseph Effect observes these movements between the Hurst range of 0 to 1. The Joseph Effect says that movements falling between 0 and 0.5 are larger and more random than normal random movements. The Joseph Effect then says that movements falling between 0.5 and 1 are part of a long-term trend. The time series in the Joseph Effect thus looks like this: 0.5
