Stable Paretian Models in Finance

In this paper we first analyze the stylized facts of electricity prices, in particular, the extreme volatility and price spikes which lead to heavy-tailed distributions of price changes. Then we calibrate Markov regime-switching (MRS) models with heavy-tailed components and show that they adequately address the aforementioned characteristics. Contrary to the common belief that electricity price models ‘should be built on log-prices’, we find evidence that modeling the prices themselves is more beneficial and methodologically sound, at least in case of MRS models. Electricity spot price, Heavy-tails, Spikes, Markov ...
and normality cannot explain stylized phenomena such as skewness, heavy tails, and volatility clustering of the empirical asset returns in finance. In 1963, Benoit Mandelbrot first used the stable (or α -stable) distribution to model the empirical distributions which have the skewness and heavy-tail property. Since α -stable distributions have infinite p -th moments for all p > α , the tempered stable processes have been proposed for overcoming this limitation of the stable distribution. On the other hand, GARCH models have been developed to explain the volatility clustering . In the GARCH model, the innovation (or residual) ...

Yeah! I hope it sticks. is great fun – but it should never be made into a real money exchange…. the stock market is already a gambling pit and movie futures would be even worse.

What is Fama & French Theory for investment? - Yahoo! Answers
In the portfolio management field, Fama and French developed the highly successful three factor model to describe the market behavior. CAPM uses a single factor, beta, to compare the excess returns of a portfolio with the excess returns of the market as a whole. But it oversimplifies the complex market. Fama and French started with the observation that two classes of stocks have tended to do better than the market as a whole: (i) small caps and (ii) stocks with a high book-to-market ratio (BM, customarily called value stocks; to be differentiated from growth stocks). They then added two factors to CAPM to reflect a ...
