We consider a new class of time series models (introduced by Engle and Russell (1998)) used in statistical applications in finance. These models treat the time between events (durations) as a stochastic process and the corresponding durations are modelled using a theory similar to that of autoregressive processes. This new class of time series models is called Autoregressive Conditional Duration (ACD) models. We apply the theory to analyse the behaviour of an Australian Stock: News Corporation, using a high-frequency data set obtained from SIRCA.
