On the behavior of the DFA and DCCA in trend-stationary processes

by   Taiane Schaedler Prass, et al.

In this work we develop the asymptotic theory of the Detrended Fluctuation Analysis (DFA) and Detrended Cross-Correlation Analysis (DCCA) for trend-stationary stochastic processes without any assumption on the specific form of the underlying distribution. All results are derived without the assumption of non-overlapping boxes for the polynomial fits. We prove the stationarity of the DFA and DCCA, viewed as a stochastic processes, obtain closed forms for moments up to second order, including the covariance structure for DFA and DCCA and a miscellany of law of large number related results. Our results generalize and improve several results presented in the literature. To verify the behavior of our theoretical results in small samples, we present a Monte Carlo simulation study and an empirical application to econometric time series.
