Algorithmic Finance wrote a new blog post titled Efficient greek estimation in generic swap-rate market models

We first develop an efficient algorithm to compute Deltas of interest rate derivatives for a number of standard market models. The computational complexity of the algorithms is shown to be proportional to the number of rates times the number of factors per step. We then show how to extend the method to efficiently compute Vegas in those market models.

Algorithmic Finance wrote a new blog post titled Forecasting prices from level-I quotes in the presence of hidden liquidity

Bid and ask sizes at the top of the order book provide information on short-term price moves. Drawing from classical descriptions of the order book in terms of queues and order-arrival rates (Smith et al., 2003), we consider a diffusion model for the evolution of the best bid/ask queues. We compute the probability that the next price move is upward, conditional on the best bid/ask sizes, the hidden liquidity in the market and the correlation between changes in the bid/ask sizes. The model can be useful, among other things, to rank trading venues in terms of the “information content” of their...

Algorithmic Finance wrote a new blog post titled Behavioral biases and investor performance

Research indicates that individual investors trade excessively and underperform the market indices, Barber and Odean (2000). The purpose of this paper is to help explain which behavioral biases, if any, can explain this result using a simulation approach. Results indicate that putting too much weight on the current environment, anchoring, is the largest factor in explaining individual investor underperformance. In addition, loss aversion is the largest factor to explain excessive trading. When these two biases are combined trading activity and underperformance are heightened. Content Type...

About:

Algorithmic Finance is both a nascent field of study and a new high-quality academic research journal that seeks to bridge computer science and finance. It covers such applications as:

  • High frequency and algorithmic trading
  • Statistical arbitrage strategies
  • Momentum and other algorithmic portfolio management
  • Machine learning and other aspects of computational financial intelligence
  • Agent-based finance
  • Complexity and market efficiency
  • Algorithmic analysis of derivatives valuation
  • Behavioral finance examining the algorithms of the investors
  • Applications of quantum computation to finance
  • News analytics and automated textual analysis
