Sample text

It is instructive to compare four well-known models of volatility—standard deviation, EWMA, ARCH, and GARCH. Assuming we have a rolling window of n days with price data p1, . . , pn, if volatility is constant or varying slowly, we can estimate the nth day volatility by: St: Dev: model : σ ^ 2n ¼ n 1X r2 n i¼1 i ð2:26Þ where ri is the observed percentage return (pi À piÀ1)/piÀ1 or log return ln (pi/piÀ1). 3) but with zero mean. Therefore, volatility σ ^ (normally written without the subscript n) is simply the standard deviation of returns.

Data does not make TA any less effective. It does, however, mean that the method is less consistent in a statistical sense. Thus, TA has always been regarded as unscientific by academia. ). Market momentum is a known fact. d. does not make risk measurement more scientific. There is no compelling reason why risk management cannot borrow some of the modelling techniques of TA such as that pertaining to momentum and cycles. From an epistemology perspective, such debate can be seen as a tacit choice between intuitive knowledge (heuristics) and mathematical correctness.

Random variable εt. 2. d. process will be stationary. d. process (like the AR(1)) is necessarily nonstationary. Indeed, it is stationary given certain conditions (|k1| < 1). 3. It is always serially correlated as shown by its ACF. , stationarity and serial correlation are related yet distinct ideas. Only under certain conditions, does one lead to another. 5 REGRESSION MODELS AND RESIDUAL ERRORS Regression is a basic tool in time series modeling to find and to quantify relationships between variables.
