comment What commercial financial libraries are available to outsource implementation risk?
I did say "mitigated", not "obliterated". ;)

comment What commercial financial libraries are available to outsource implementation risk?
On the lack of documentation: this is often mitigated by (1) fast response time of developer and forums, (2) access to open source. The second is particularly valuable when you need to tweak or extend library functions.

comment Are there any standard techniques for adding realistic synthetic microstructure noise to a price series?
Fair value is hardly a concept applied to frequencies wherein microstructure noise is relevant.

Can you expand on the application, the motivation or, if that's sensitive information, on general scenarios? In particular, (1) the relation (formal or heuristic) to band restricted WN generators and (2) what do you have in mind as a benchmark for "good enough" (again, formally or heuristically).

comment What is the difference between these two optimization procedures?
Your title is misleading. Your question seems to be about assuming a certain covariance matrix and estimating the covariance matrix from historical data. The contrast in title (Correlation vs Covariance) has little to do with it.

comment Are two identical time series cointegrated?
The first paragraph is wrong, in particular the definition of cointegration. Stationarity needs not be achieved for any linear combination, but only for some.

Idiosyncratic but non-diversifiable should command a risk premium.

comment what are the most common explanations of the January effect?
Yes. I am puzzled at the 4000 google scholar results for "january effect". Some old, others very recent. It seems to me it is not settled and many competing explanations exists.
