Prices in financial markets are normally summarized by time series, where transaction prices are sampled at fixed time intervals. Directional change is an alternative way of sampling data: transaction price is sampled when a significant change in the price is recorded. In this paper, we explain how directional changes can provide a valuable alternative perspective to price movements. We also describe the frontier of directional change research, which include forecasting, algorithmic trading and market tracking.
