  • Risk-Sensitive Asset Management in a Wishart-Autoregressive Factor Model
           with Jumps
    • Authors: Hiroaki Hata; Jun Sekine
      Abstract: Abstract Risk-sensitive asset management problems, both those with a finite horizon and those with an infinite horizon, are studied in a financial market model that has a Wishart autoregressive-type jump-diffusion factor, which is a positive-definite symmetric matrix-valued process. The model describes the stochasticity of the market covariance structure, the interest rates, and the risk-premium of the risky assets. We obtain explicit representations of the solutions to the problems.

  • Merton Model and Capital Measurement in Commercial Banks: A Case Study of
           Selected Emerging Countries in Southeast Asia
    • Authors: Mohammadreza Janvisloo Alizadeh; Reza Sherafatian-Jahromi
      Abstract: Abstract Following the implementation of Basel III criteria concerning the supervision of banks capital, this paper attempts to examine the competence of Merton-type probability of default as an indicator for measuring optimal capital in commercial banks of five Southeast Asian emerging economies. The estimated default risk changes are consistent with the changes in market value of banks’ asset in countries studied. Using a forward-looking approach, the banks required capital has been measured to reach a hypothetical level of probability of default as an accepted level by policy makers. Empirical results show that the banks had to increase their current capital in order to reduce the risk of bankruptcy in crisis times. The findings of this study refer evidently to the efficiency of Merton-type default risk to estimate the adequate capital and to use in micro and macro-prudential studies or stress tests on commercial banks.

  • Forecasting Financial Market Volatility Using a Dynamic Topic Model
    • Authors: Takayuki Morimoto; Yoshinori Kawasaki
      Abstract: Abstract This study employs big data and text data mining techniques to forecast financial market volatility. We incorporate financial information from online news sources into time series volatility models. We categorize a topic for each news article using time stamps and analyze the chronological evolution of the topic in the set of articles using a dynamic topic model. After calculating a topic score, we develop time series models that incorporate the score to estimate and forecast realized volatility. The results of our empirical analysis suggest that the proposed models can contribute to improving forecasting accuracy.

  • VIX Forecast Under Different Volatility Specifications
    • Authors: Ying Wang; Hoi Ying Wong
      Abstract: Abstract Stochastic volatility (SV) models are theoretically more attractive than the GARCH type of models as it allows additional randomness. The classical SV models deduce a continuous probability distribution for volatility so that it does not admit a computable likelihood function. The estimation requires the use of Bayesian approach. A recent approach considers discrete stochastic autoregressive volatility models for a bounded and tractable likelihood function. Hence, a maximum likelihood estimation can be achieved. This paper proposes a general approach to link SV models under the physical probability measure, both continuous and discrete types, to their processes under a martingale measure. Doing so enables us to deduce the close-form expression for the VIX forecast for the both SV models and GARCH type models. We then carry out an empirical study to compare the performances of the continuous and discrete SV models using GARCH models as benchmark models.

  • An Algorithmic Approach to Optimal Asset Liquidation Problems
    • Authors: Juri Hinz; Jeremy Yee
      Abstract: Abstract This paper examines discrete-time optimal control problems arising in the context of optimal asset liquidation using recently published algorithms and code. We address these questions within a realistic framework, assuming that the order placement decisions must be adapted dynamically. Furthermore, we show how a duality-based technique can be used to assess the quality of our numerical solution.

Our mood-proxy variables include six weather (temperature, humidity, cloud cover, air pressure, visibility, and wind speed), three weather indicator variables (fog, thunder storm and rain or drizzle) and two biorhythmic variables (SAD and lunar phases). We adopt a robust approach and attempt to select the best parsimonious econometric model for each market. Our findings suggest that mood-proxy variables have some convincing influences in South Asian capital markets. In some instances, these variables are influencing returns while in other instances they are influencing volatility.

  • Effects of Jumps and Small Noise in High-Frequency Financial Econometrics
    • Authors: Naoto Kunitomo; Daisuke Kurisu
      Abstract: Abstract Several new statistical procedures for high-frequency financial data analysis have been developed to estimate risk quantities and test the presence of jumps in the underlying continuous-time financial processes. Although the role of micro-market noise is important in high-frequency financial data, there are some basic questions on the effects of presence of noise and jump in the underlying stochastic processes. When there can be jumps and (micro-market) noise at the same time, it is not obvious whether the existing statistical methods are reliable for applications in actual data analysis. We investigate the misspecification effects of jumps and noise on some basic statistics and the testing procedures for jumps proposed by Ait-Sahalia and Jacod (Ann Stat 37–1:184–222 2009; 38–5:3093–3123 2010) as an illustration. We find that their first test (testing the presence of jumps as a null-hypothesis) is asymptotically robust in the small-noise asymptotic sense against possible misspecifications while their second test (testing no-jumps as a null-hypothesis) is quite sensitive to the presence of noise.

  • Pricing CIR Yield Options by Conditional Moment Matching
    • Authors: Adrian Prayoga; Nicolas Privault
      Abstract: Abstract We propose an approximation scheme for the pricing of yield options in the CIR model using conditional moment matching based on the gamma and lognormal distributions. This method is fast and simple to implement, and it shows a high degree of accuracy without being subject to the numerical instabilities that can be encountered with more sophisticated approaches.

  • Optimal Hedging of Basket Barrier Options with Additive Models and Its
           Application to Equity Value Separation Problem
    • Authors: Yuji Yamada
      Abstract: Abstract At the heart of optimal hedging with additive models in Yamada (Recent advances in financial engineering: proceedings of the KIER-TMU international workshop on financial engineering, World Scientific, pp 225–245, 2010; Proceedings of the 2011 American control conference, pp 3856–3861, 2011; Asia-Pac Financ Mark 19(2):149–179, 2012) is to replicate the payoff of European basket options using separate options as close as possible. In this paper, we extend their technique for the case of path-dependent barrier options, where the mean square error of the payoffs between the basket barrier option and the sum of options on the individual assets is minimized over any smooth payoff functions. To this end, we propose to represent the underlying assets using the Brownian bride decomposition and show that computations involving conditional expectations of basket barrier options boil down to those of unconditional expectations. This procedure enables us to provide an algorithm to compute the necessary and sufficient condition for the optimal hedging problem based on the Monte Carlo method. Then, we consider to apply our methodology to the Black–Cox type first passage time structural model, where a defaultable company possesses/runs multiple assets/projects and the default may occur the first time the asset value hits a certain lower threshold before the maturity. We formulate the equity value separation problem using additive models, in which individual equity values are introduced so that their sum approximates the total equity value as close as possible. It is also shown that any portion of total equity value may be assigned as an initial value of each individual equity when using the optimal smooth functions. Finally, we examine the contributions of individual equity values to default or survival by applying a certain normalization for conditional expectations via numerical experiments to illustrate our proposed methodology.

  • Expectations Hypothesis and Term Structure of Interest Rates: An Evidence
           from Emerging Market
    • Authors: Hassan Shareef; Santhakumar Shijin
      Pages: 137 - 152
      Abstract: Abstract The integration of emerging economies with developed economies has changed the behaviour of interest rates and exchange rate fluctuation. The current study tries to analyse the implication of expectation hypothesis (EH) and term structures of interest rates between India and US. Using vector auto regressive estimates, the study tries to test the dynamic interdependence of interest rates on exchange rate fluctuation. Further, the study estimates Granger causality tests and Impulse Response Functions to test the behaviour of interest rate movements for a period of nineteen years ranging from June 1996 to June 2015.The empirical results of the study show evidence in line with the existence of EH in the case of emerging market. Nevertheless, in the case of advanced economies we do not find any evidence for EH. The findings revealed that the spread between long and short rate of India is influenced by short-term interest rates and past values of Indian spread. This implies that the fluctuations in the long rate over the short rate evidenced the strong presence of EH as far as emerging economy is concerned.To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study in Indian market, which tests the role of EH in interest rate fluctuations along with exchange rate. Since majority of the studies on term structure of interest rates focus on developed markets, the present study is an attempt to test the causal relationship between developed and developing economies.

  • Analysis of the Nonlinear Option Pricing Model Under Variable Transaction
    • Authors: Daniel Ševčovič; Magdaléna Žitňanská
      Pages: 153 - 174
      Abstract: Abstract In this paper we analyze a nonlinear Black–Scholes model for option pricing under variable transaction costs. The diffusion coefficient of the nonlinear parabolic equation for the price V is assumed to be a function of the underlying asset price and the Gamma of the option. We show that the generalizations of the classical Black–Scholes model can be analyzed by means of transformation of the fully nonlinear parabolic equation into a quasilinear parabolic equation for the second derivative of the option price. We show existence of a classical smooth solution and prove useful bounds on the option prices. Furthermore, we construct an effective numerical scheme for approximation of the solution. The solutions are obtained by means of the efficient numerical discretization scheme of the Gamma equation. Several computational examples are presented.

  • Bond Market Development, Economic Growth and Other Macroeconomic
           Determinants: Panel VAR Evidence
    • Authors: Rudra P. Pradhan; Mak B. Arvin; Sara E. Bennett; Mahendhiran Nair; John H. Hall
      Pages: 175 - 201
      Abstract: Abstract This paper examines causal relationships between bond market development, economic growth and four other macroeconomic variables in 35 countries for the period 1993–2011. Bond market development is defined in terms of the significance and presence of public sector, private sector, and international bond issues. Additional covariates being considered are the inflation rate, the real effective exchange rate, the real interest rate, and a measure of openness to international trade. We use a panel vector auto-regression model to reveal the nature of Granger causality among these variables. Specifically, we find that bond market development and the four macroeconomic covariates may be long-run causative factors for economic growth. Thus, policy makers seeking to foster economic growth are warned to check multi-causal studies involving all these variables before setting their policies.

  • The Effects of Analysts’ Herding on Traders: Evidence from the
           Taiwan Stock Market
    • Authors: Po-Jung Chen
      Pages: 203 - 227
      Abstract: Abstract The primary aim of this study is to carry out an investigation into the effects of analysts’ herding on different types of traders in Taiwan stock market. Our empirical results reveal that smaller traders are more readily affected by analyst herding, essentially as a result of their lack of experience and their lack of access to relevant information sources, which leads to them reacting directly to the central point of the recommendations made by the analysts. Our findings also reveal that both small and large traders are affected by analyst herding in the recommendations provided by the analysts relating specifically to buying. As for the evidence on analyst herding in recommendations relating to selling, larger traders are invariably found to have made use of their informational advantages to act in advance of such recommendations.

  • The End of the Month Option and Other Embedded Options in Futures
    • Authors: Kristoffer Lindensjö
      Pages: 69 - 83
      Abstract: Abstract Futures contracts often contain several different kinds of embedded options related to the delivery of the underlying. The end of the month option allows the holder of the short end of a futures contract to deliver the underlying at any time during the last week of the contract period at a fixed price determined at the start of the last week. We derive a formula for this price in a general incomplete financial market, in which the process underlying the futures contract is a general adapted càdlàg process and the risk free interest rate process is a general adapted process, both satisfying certain integrability conditions. In a similar setting we also derive a formula for the futures price process of a futures contract which first has no option active, then it has an active timing option (which lets the holder of the short end deliver at any time during the last month of the contract period) and lastly it has an active end of the month option. This combination of delivery options is present in the real-world financial markets. We show that this futures price process is dominated by a standard futures price process with maturity at the time of the activation of the end of the month option. We also show that if the underlying is an asset with a non-positive convenience yield and the interest rate is non-negative then it is optimal to deliver when the end of the month option becomes active. The main contribution of this paper is to properly define the end of the month option and to derive a formula for the futures price process of a futures contract with the combination of options described above.

  • Pricing Foreign Exchange Options Under Intervention by Absorption Modeling
    • Authors: Taiga Saito
      Pages: 85 - 106
      Abstract: Abstract We consider option pricing for a foreign exchange (FX) rate where interventions by an authority may take place when the rate approaches to a certain level at the down side. We formulate the forward FX model by a diffusion process which is stopped by a hitting time of an absorption boundary. Moreover, for a deterministic volatility case with a moving absorption whose level is described by an ordinary differential equation, we obtain closed-form formulas for prices of a European put option and a digital option, and Greeks of the put option. Furthermore, we show an extension of the pricing formula to the case where the intervention level is unknown. In numerical examples, we show option prices for different strikes for the absorption model and the extended model. We compare the model prices with the market prices for EURCHF options traded before January 2015 with the absorption model, and also show experiments of the extended model as an application to the pricing under uncertain views on the intervention.

    • Authors: Akihiko Takahashi; Toshihiro Yamada
      Abstract: Abstract This paper proposes a new analytical approximation scheme for the representation of the forward–backward stochastic differential equations (FBSDEs) of Ma and Zhang (Ann Appl Probab, 2002). In particular, we obtain an error estimate for the scheme applying Malliavin calculus method for the forward SDEs combined with the Picard iteration scheme for the BSDEs. We also show numerical examples for pricing option with counterparty risk under local and stochastic volatility models, where the credit value adjustment is taken into account.

  • On the Price of Risk Under a Regime Switching CGMY Process
    • Authors: Pious Asiimwe; Charles Wilson Mahera; Olivier Menoukeu-Pamen
      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, we study option pricing under a regime-switching exponential Lévy model. Assuming that the coefficients are time-dependent and modulated by a finite state Markov chain, we generalise the work in Momeya and Morales (Method Comput Appl Probab, 2014, doi:10.1007/s11009-014-9399-2), and Siu and Yang (Acta Mathe Appl Sin 2:369–388, 2009), that is, we use a pricing method based on the Esscher transform conditional on the information available on the Markov chain. We also carry out numerical analysis, to show the impact of the risk induced by the underlying Markov chain on the price of the option.

  • Central Bank Intervention in USD/INR Market: Estimating Its Reaction
           Function and Impact on Volatility
    • Authors: Smita Roy Trivedi; P. G. Apte
      Abstract: Abstract Econometric evidence on why central banks intervene in the foreign exchange market and the impact of such intervention has remained inconclusive. We contribute to the literature with evidence from India, a managed float regime that sees consistent monitoring and intervention by Reserve Bank of India, India’s central bank. Estimation of the central bank reaction function shows that increased volatility in the foreign exchange market and misalignment from targeted rates are important objectives behind intervention. The paper further uses the GARCH framework to study how intervention influences exchange rate volatility. We find that intervention in the spot market increases volatility while that in the forward market reduces volatility.

  • Measuring Credit Risk of Individual Corporate Bonds in US Energy Sector
    • Authors: Takeaki Kariya; Yoko Tanokura; Hideyuki Takada; Yoshiro Yamamura
      Abstract: Abstract In this paper, using the measures of the credit risk price spread (CRiPS) and the standardized credit risk price spread (S-CRiPS) proposed in Kariya’s (A CB (corporate bond) pricing model for deriving default probabilities and recovery rates. Eaton, IMS Collection Series: Festschrift for Professor Morris L., 2013) corporate bond model, we make a comprehensive empirical credit risk analysis on individual corporate bonds (CBs) in the US energy sector, where cross-sectional CB and government bond price data is used with bond attributes. Applying the principal component analysis method to the S-CRiPSs, we also categorize individual CBs into three different groups and study on their characteristics of S-CRiPS fluctuations of each group in association with bond attributes. Secondly, using the market credit rating scheme proposed by Kariya et al. (2014), we make credit-homogeneous groups of CBs and show that our rating scheme is empirically very timely and useful. Thirdly, we derive term structures of default probabilities for each homogeneous group, which reflect the investors’ views and perspectives on the future default probabilities or likelihoods implicitly implied by the CB prices for each credit-homogeneous group. Throughout this paper it is observed that our credit risk models and the associated measures for individual CBs work effectively and can timely provide the market credit information evaluated by investors.

  • Speculative Futures Trading under Mean Reversion
    • Authors: Tim Leung; Jiao Li; Xin Li; Zheng Wang
      Abstract: Abstract This paper studies the problem of trading futures with transaction costs when the underlying spot price is mean-reverting. Specifically, we model the spot dynamics by the Ornstein–Uhlenbeck, Cox–Ingersoll–Ross, or exponential Ornstein–Uhlenbeck model. The futures term structure is derived and its connection to futures price dynamics is examined. For each futures contract, we describe the evolution of the roll yield, and compute explicitly the expected roll yield. For the futures trading problem, we incorporate the investor’s timing option to enter or exit the market, as well as a chooser option to long or short a futures upon entry. This leads us to formulate and solve the corresponding optimal double stopping problems to determine the optimal trading strategies. Numerical results are presented to illustrate the optimal entry and exit boundaries under different models. We find that the option to choose between a long or short position induces the investor to delay market entry, as compared to the case where the investor pre-commits to go either long or short.
