Hi all, I am new here, just registered: I would like to code in Java the Shannon entropy for financial time series but the process to follow it is not fully clear to me: for what I have seen so far it seems that entropy is computed on log diff, then 3 different states are defined (return higher, lower or neutral). I wonder if there is someone so kind to explain the logic, i.e. the steps I have to accomplish. Thanks all
