ODA Model Perfectly Predicts S&P 500 Declines of 20% or Greater

Paul R. Yarnold. Ph.D. Optimal Data Analysis, LLC The Shiller price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio assesses mean inflation-adjusted earnings in the prior decade.1 Five times over the past 150 years this index consistently exceeded 30 during a bull market run. Two times were during the Great Depression and the “dot-com” bubble, and both resulted in record declines … Continue reading ODA Model Perfectly Predicts S&P 500 Declines of 20% or Greater

Implementing ODA from Within Stata: Exploratory Hypothesis, Three-Category Class Variable, Continuous Attribute

Paul R. Yarnold, Ph.D. and Ariel Linden, Dr. P.H. Optimal Data Analysis, LLC & Linden Consulting Group, LLC This paper describes how to test a non-directional (exploratory) hypothesis for a design relating a three-category class (“dependent”) variable and a continuous attribute vis-à-vis the Stata package for implementing ODA.
