Multifractal Random Walk Models: Application to the Algerian Dinar exchange rates


  • DIAF, Sami


This paper deals with a special class of multifractal models called the Multifractal Random Walk which has been widely used in finance because of its parsimonious framework, featuring many properties of financial data not considered in traditional linear models. Using the log-normal version, results confirm the Algerian Dinar is a multifractal process and has a rich wider variation spectrum versus the US Dollar than the Euro.
