What Is Financial Mathematics?
Welcome to the site! I'm looking forward to hearing more about what math and physics PhDs contribute to finance. I find that subject fascinating - I work in a field where I get to see what mathematicians and physicists contribute to biology, using some of the same techniques you describe. Mike Mathematics in Finance! is an old subject, not really new. In the 1960s as a new hire at the Boeing Company with a BS in Business and minors in math and physics, I was assigned to their Industrial Engineering department. One of my assignments was to create a predictive cost model for the manhours of design labor required to ... market research, surveys and trends

martinsewell.com: Finance: Stylized Facts: Dependence
The autocorrelation (also known as serial correlation, serial dependence or mean aversion/mean reversion) of price changes (and therefore log returns) is insignificant. In light of the weak form of the efficient markets hypothesis, this is not surprising. The autocorrelations of daily, weekly and monthly stock index returns are positive (Campbell, Lo and MacKinlay, 1996). The autocorrelation of weekly stock returns is weakly negative (Campbell, Lo and MacKinlay, 1996). The autocorrelation of 1 minute FX returns is negative (Dacorogna, et al. , 2001). Fama (1970) found that 22 out of 30 stocks exhibited positive daily serial ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Fed Economist Slams Econ Bloggers
Richmond Fed economist Kartik Athreya recently penned a criticism of economics bloggers that has exploded over the blogosphere. Basically he says that professional, PhD-educated economists can be trusted because of their rigorous methodology. Bloggers (most), he says, aren’t to be trusted. I have responded to his critique: Dear Dr. Athreya: I am an economics blogger and I very much enjoyed your think piece on economics and blogging (“ Economics is Hard. Don’t Let Bloggers Tell You Otherwise ”). I was prepared to hate it because I believe you are talking about me. But on cooler reflection I think you make ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
The Uses and Abuses of Economic Ideology
LONDON – John Maynard Keynes famously wrote that “the ideas of economists and political philosophers, both when they are right and when they are wrong, are more powerful than commonly understood. Practical men, who believe themselves to be quite exempt from any intellectual influences, are usually the slaves of some defunct economist.” But I suspect that a greater danger lies elsewhere, with the practical men and women employed in the policymaking functions of central banks, regulatory agencies, governments, and financial institutions’ risk-management departments tending to gravitate to simplified versions of the dominant ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

WikiAnswers - Finance Management and its importance
The new NYSE rules for corporate governance require the audit committee to discuss and review the firm's risk assessment and hedging strategies. They also put additional requirements for the composition and the financial knowledge of the directors sitting on the board and on the audit committee. In this paper, we investigate whether these new rules as well as those set by the Sarbanes Oxley act lead to hedging decisions that are of more benefit to shareholders. We construct a novel hand collected dataset that allows us to explore multiple definitions for the financially knowledgeable term present in this new regulation. We ...
