  1. Hi hishamh, thanks for visiting my blog.

    Do you have data that you may need in your research ?
    You may try “crowdsourcing”. Someone in the “crowd” may have that piece of vital information.

    Someone asks this question in Mahalo Answers about historical gold prices.

    I did a search and found this Deutsche Bundesbank website.
    Haha, got the best answer, with a small token of reward :-)

    I have asked questions too in Mahalo Answers. Sometimes it yielded great answers.
    Maybe I shall share my experience in future post.

  2. Pick a financial asset and describe its time series properties and indicate whether
    the returns of the series behave in an efficient manner in no more than 600 words
    (excluding appendices and tables). You are free to choose any financial asset, any
    frequency or sample length. Present the empirical evidence from two academic
    journal publications on the same topic. Compare in relation to your tests and
    results. help?
