Abstract

A new methodology for testing and dating economic bubbles based on a sign test with recursive median adjustment is presented.

The approach is very pragmatic and relies upon an analysis of the integration order of the analyzed series. This paper presents an applicationof the method to the North American stock market and the findings concerning the origination and collapsing
