Hi, my name is Diego Fernandez from Uruguay. I am doing my Master Thesis in Economics. I'm using RQA measures to analyze Dow Jones. Is it posible to analyze causality betwen two time series aplying RQA? If it possible how I can analyze causality?

Re: Causality

There are different ways for causality tests using recurrence plots. I suggest to look into the rich literature:
