In the following article a new method for modelling exchange rates with a binary-temporal representation is proposed. The presented model allows for an approximation of change probabilities for course trajectory, depending on the direction and duration of previous change. Model parameters are appointed based on statistical analysis of a binary-temporal representation of 5-year historical tick data for AUD/NZD exchange rate. The main characteristics of the model are parameter’s independence from any superior trends and a possibility of application in algorithms of automatic trade systems.
