Hello wizards,
First of all, I'm a physicist and therefore I'm not much used to use
statistics. So, please forgive me if this is a FAQ or stupid, but I
failed to find the answer by myself.

I have used "runs.test" (Package tseries)  for computes the runs test
for randomness , but I get this result:

Runs test
-1.8732   P-value = 0.0610

Alternative Hypothesis : Two sided

How can I interpret this result ?
Generally, one rejects the null hypothesis if the p-value is smaller
than or equal to the significance level,but I have examined the
documentation but I don't find the significance level.

Thanks in advance.
