This much-needed book, from a selection of top international experts, fills a gap by providing a manual of applied quantitative financial analysis. It focuses on advanced empirical methods for modelling financial markets in the context of practical financial applications.
Data, software and techniques specifically aligned to trading and investment will enable the reader to implement and interpret quantitative methodologies covering various models.
The unusually wide-ranging methodologies include not only the ‘traditional’ financial econometrics but also technical analysis systems and many nonparametric tools from the fields of data mining and artificial intelligence. However, for those readers wishing to skip the more theoretical developments, the practical application of even the most advanced techniques is made as accessible as possible.
Depending on the model being described, different software will be used, and examples included on the accompanying CD. Data and details will be provided to enable the reader to transfer the routines to a different software package.
The book will be read by quantitative analysts and traders, fund managers, risk managers; graduate students in finance and MBA courses.
