 08-06-2007 #1 marvin m Guest   Posts: n/a Statistics question. Is 35% correlation between variables significant? I have ****yzed price changes for 100 stocks over 90 days and have compared these changes against a an indepent characteristic for each stock, yielding a 35% correlation. Is this significant?

Gaussian distributions do not apply to the stock market. They teach it in school because it is easy to teach. http://www.designs.valueinvestor
