This optimization is trivial $$w^{T,J}_i = \begin{cases} 1 \quad \text{if } i=\arg \max_i R^{T,J}(S_i) \\0 \quad \text{otherwise} \end{cases}$$ That is to say, when you optimize only one weight will be nonzero. That's because these ratios incorporate no notion of distributional width, and therefore do not reward diversification. With no concentration ...

The PerformanceAnalytics library reflects several years worth of development by Brian Peterson and Peter Carl, as well as multiple collaborators. It is fairly widely used, tested and debugged. Basic software engineering practices suggest that you should strive to re-use it if possible. Options for that include accessing a remote R instance via RServe ...

Long story short, thanks to Dirk Eddelbuettel's suggestion I played a bit with rredis and indeed it offers quite a number interesting solutions. However, I still decided to start to write my own performance analytics library (albeit obviously smaller and more specific to my use case) in combination with an established Math/Stats library because I need more ...

In Forecasting Financial Market Volatility Ser-Huang Poon dedicated entire chapter to the question, so the issue is far from simple. I don't believe there one single best way because of many questions that depend on model form and application such as Should one evaluate volatility or variance, or perhaps ln(vol)? What is the benchmark - volatility is ...

Whether or not it is flawed in practice depends on dynamic the risk exposures really are. Many factors or indices used for style analysis actually require dynamic trading to maintain - so you could potentially have a fund that trades a lot while still generating a return series that can be be modeled out of sample with static exposures. One relatively ...
