Episodic dependencies and moving averages profitability of Romanian capital markets. The evolution of informational efficiency of Romanian stock market is illustrated by means of a test which takes into account nonlinear dynamics. According to this test, we cannot consider a significant amelioration of the efficiency degree of Romanian stock market. Moreover, knowing that random walk are joint tests of the efficiency hypothesis, there was researched the profitability of moving averages on the identified linear and nonlinear correlation sub periods. The results revealed that only nonlinear dependencies are profitably exploited by the moving averages strategies. The most profitable strategy of 15000 strategies was analyzed. The originality of this research is given by the combination of random walk tests with the technical analysis tests, which led to the construction of a new methodology for the evaluation of informational efficiency in weak form.
