In this paper we assess whether some simple forms of technical analysis can predict stock price movements in the Madrid Stock Exchange. To that end, we use daily data for General Index of the Madrid Stock Exchange, covering the thirty-one-year period from January 1966-October 1997.
Our results provide strong support for profitability of these technical trading rules. By making use of bootstrap techniques, we show that returns obtained from these trading rules are not consistent with several null models frequently used in finance, such as AR(1). GARCH and GARCH-M.
