Bloomberg Quant Nov 2015 Seminar review

 

Bloomberg Quant Nov 2015 Seminar review

From NYC Contact on his review:

 

Bloomberg Quant Seminar Nov 2015 Review: 1) Tradable estimates for Historical Volatility (HV) use a variance type calculation plus dynamic hedging strategy Vol Est = (Xt – X0)^2 + Dynamic Trading Tradable Vol = (High-Low)^2 [ ((High + Low)/2-Fixed Price level)/High-Low] Stopping times in computing the HV should match the Hedging (Dynamic Trading) stopping times. 2) Use Bagging to reduce Decision Tree variance within a Random Forest 3) Discussion with Peter Carr/Nassim Taleb You can hedge on price or time or delta delta is the best but is generally not quoted, instead it is calculated. Examples of quoted delta: ATM Straddle Delta or Risk Reversal Delta ( buy a call + sell a put) 4) Discussion with Macros Lopez De Prado Even if you have a huge sample space (10 years of historical tick data) with a small trading window (1 minute) plus a fixed number of parameters (20) in your machine learning algorithm. You still need to track the total number of experiments/strategies performed although you will be able to perform many more experiments before you end up overfitting the data. P/L dissection should include the first 4 moments. i.e. Directional P/L, Volatility P/L, Jump P/L, Fat Tail P/L

Was this is the best Bloomberg Quant Seminar? Here was a summary

Thanks to Sholom for sending

Professor Jim Gatheral Speaks about Fractional Volatility Models

Summary:

– Use Fractional Brownian Motion to model SP500 Realized Variance

– The different of the logs of realized variance are gaussian

-The Hurst number is used as a degree freedom.
Just like a Student t distribution describes SP500 returns over time
by varying the degrees of freedom n (n=100 for low volatility environments and n=1 for very high volatility environments)

-For the really spiky parts of the realized variance distribution, the Hurst Number is set to .14 giving a very jumpy infinitely discontinuous function that is still measurable so you can use Lebesgue Integration to compute the sum over the high volatility time interval of Fall 2008.

– The open question is how to predict what hurst number to use at what time interval which would make the model predictive/forward looking instead of just descriptive.

Nassim Taleb started a huge fight with Jim claiming that the model
makes no sense since realized variance is not gaussian even when you compute the difference of the logs. Jim responded with the change in hurst numbers from 0.5 (random walk) to 0.14 (extreme discontinuous jumps). Nassim then made a comment about Rational Expectations which Jim agreed with. I think Nassim was
saying that you can’t predict huge jumps, so you remove them from
your predictive model and only include the extreme jumps as part of your descriptive model.

Extreme Modeling vs Rational Expectations:

Nassim Taleb seems to always think in terms of extreme events
(i.e. black swans induced by exogenous information). Jim Gatheral
took a more Rational approach by saying omit the extreme events since they are rare and you can’t predict them. Once you protect
yourself from black swan events, then use a model that predicts
all other types of events (driven by endogenous information)
to form the basis of your trading strategy

Bryan, this is a pretty popular trading strategy combination:

 

Learning tips from CBOE Seminar trading volatility with VIX and SPX Options or Futures

 

Is your priority preference to futures or options?

 

NYC Contact lists how futures are more profitable than trading options but there are risks
One of my members suggested this

 

Should we focus on futures in a calendar spreads with pair trading ?

This is the non technical illegal thing HFT players are pulling off:

 

Problems of HFT players who front load for (payment for order flow) payment of flow from other brokers

 

Interested in the volatility. I may introduce my volaility cluster through GARCH but for now, you may interested in this volatility topic within R: 

 

Just trying to offer different ‘options’ ( I am so funny ;->)
