Financial Econometrics Modeling: Derivatives Pricing, Hedge Funds and Term Structure Models
|Publication Date||January 2011|
|Formats||Hardcover Ebook (EPUB) Ebook (PDF)|
This book proposes new tools and models to price options, assess market volatility, and investigate the market efficiency hypothesis. In particular, the book considers new models for hedge funds and derivatives of derivatives, shows how to use option prices to infer about risk-averse probability distributions, and adds to the literature of testing for the efficiency of markets both theoretically and empirically. The empirical applications concern examples to both developed and emerging financial markets. In addition, the book proposes a new general efficient framework for pricing options using time integration schemes and highlights nonlinear financial integration modeling. Finally, the book provides a macroeconomic interpretation of the curvature using latent factors of the term structure.
