|Abstract: ||The price of stocks, futures, commodities and currency are for ever changing. Anyone interested in financial prices soon discovers that changes in prices are frequently substantial and are always difficult to forecast. This paper describes the behavior of prices from a statistical perspective. Specifically, employ several technical trading rules to uncover the trend of futures price movement and attempt to make profit out of the trend. In this paper, trading of seven technical trading systems is simulated for three futures contracts from September 1998 to March 2005 to test for market disequilibrium. The results differ by trading systems. Four systems produced positive mean net returns and five systems produced positive gross return when optimal parameters were used. These results indicate that, there exist opportunities to design profitable trading systems for futures markets.|
