We propose a generalization of the detrended cross-correlation coefficient rho_DCCA introduced in ref. [1] that measures cross-correlations between the detrended fluctuations of two signals on different temporal scales by using the detrended cross-correlation and detrended fluctuation analyses (DCCA [2] and DFA [3], respectively). A rationale behind our work is that the ρDCCA coefficient performs well in many practical situations but its applicability is limited to detection of whether two signals are generally cross-correlated on different scales without possibility to obtain any information on the amplitude of the fluctuations involved in producing these cross-correlations. Our approach adds the related power to this measure by replacing the DCCA and DFA algorithms with their multifractal counterparts: MFCCA [4] and MFDFA [5], thus allowing the new, q-dependent coefficient ρq to be more discriminative in respect to the fluctuation amplitudes. We present application of ρq to time series produced by certain stochastic processes originated in financial market analysis and discuss its advantages over the standard rho_DCCA. Then we analyze selected empirical financial data and show the results. As a side-product of this analysis, we present arguments that oblige us to advocate the MFCCA algorithm as a superior one to the other variants of the multifractal extensions of DCCA known from literature.
