Abstract: On a high-frequency scale the time series are not homogeneous, therefore standard correlation measures cannot be directly applied to the raw data. To deal with this problem the time series have to be either homogenized through interpolation, or methods that can handle raw non-synchronous time series need to be employed. This paper compares two traditional methods that use interpolation with an alternative method applied directly to the actual time series. The three methods are tested on simulated data and actual trades time series.
