  1. 1. Parameter Update Schemes for Hidden Markov Models applied to Financial Returns

    Master-uppsats, Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik

    Författare :Sigfrid Forsberg; [2022]
    Nyckelord :Markov Chain; Finance; Hidden Markov Model; Generalized Autoregressive Score Model; S P-500; Nikkei; Adaptive Model; Volatility; Regime-switching Model; Line-Search Algorithm; Predictor-Corrector; Quasi-Newton; Mathematics and Statistics;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis was dedicated to investigating the use of different parameter update schemes for Hidden Markov models with time-varying parameters, with an emphasis on developing alternatives to the quasi-Newton step. The focus was on applications to financial returns, using data from the S\&P-500 and the Nikkei index, and for comparison, a trial using synthetic data was also performed. LÄS MER

  2. 2. A Model for Estimating Short Interest

    Kandidat-uppsats, KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Författare :Knut Dahlström; Carl Forssbeck; [2021]
    Nyckelord :Statistics; applied mathematics; regression; finance; short interest; stock market; Statistik; tillämpad matematik; regression; finans; korta positioner; aktiemarknaden;

    Sammanfattning : The hefty price increases in heavily shorted stocks in the beginning of 2021 indicates that short interest might be an underrated yet important key figure for investors when deciding on whether to take on an investment strategy or not. Most stock exchanges release information regarding the short interest only once a month leaving investors having to make decisions on outdated information. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Statistical Modeling of Dynamic Risk in Security Systems

    Master-uppsats, KTH/Matematisk statistik

    Författare :Gurpreet Singh; [2020]
    Nyckelord :Statistics; applied mathematics; machine learning; forecasting; neural networks; logistic regression; resampling; classifier chains; binary relevance; Statistik; tillämpad matematik; maskininlärning; neurala nätverk; logistisk regression;

    Sammanfattning : Big data has been used regularly in finance and business to build forecasting models. It is, however, a relatively new concept in the security industry. This study predicts technology related alarm codes that will sound in the coming 7 days at location $L$ by observing the past 7 days. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Valuing firms within the utilities sector using regression analysis: : An empirical study of the US and European market

    Kandidat-uppsats, KTH/Matematisk statistik
