On Definition Without a proper definition, logic discourse would be impossible. Without logic discourse, nothing can be accomplished. Confucius

Definition of the Trend Within the given data span, the trend is an intrinsically fitted monotonic function, or a function in which there can be at most one extremum. The trend should be determined by the same mechanisms that generate the data; it should be an intrinsic and local property. Being intrinsic, the method for defining the trend has to be adaptive. The results should be intrinsic (objective); all traditional trend determination methods give extrinsic (subjective) results. Being local, it has to associate with a local length scale, and be valid only within that length span as a part of a full wave cycle.

Definition of Detrend and Variability Within the given data span, detrend is an operation to remove the trend. Within the given data span, the Variability is the residue of the data after the removal of the trend. As the trend should be intrinsic and local properties of the data; Detrend and Variability are also local properties. All traditional trend determination methods are extrinsic and/or subjective.

The Need for HHT HHT is an adaptive (local, intrinsic, and objective) method to find the intrinsic local properties of the given data set, therefore, it is ideal for defining the trend and variability.

Various Definitions of Variability Variability defined by percentage Gain is the absolute value of the Gain. Variability defined by daily high-low is the percentage of absolute value of High-Low. Variability defined by Empirical Mode Decomposition is the percentage of the absolute value of the sum from selected IMFs. Financial data do not look like ARIMA.

Monte Carlo Result : IMF Energy vs. Period

Empirical Observation: Histograms IMFs By Central Limit theory IMF should be normally distributed.

Histograms : IMF Energy Density By Central Limit theory, IMF should be normally distributed; therefore, its energy should be Chi-squared distributed.

Summary Not all IMF have the same statistical significance. Based on the white noise study, we have established a method to determine the statistical significant components.
