I am experimenting with the PortfolioAnalytics package to optimize portfolio with dollar neutral and transaction costs as constraints to the quadratic utility objective function. A sample R snippet is the following:
data(edhec) R <- edhec[,1:6] colnames(R) <- c("CA", "TAG", "DS", "EM", "EQMN", "ED") funds <- colnames(R) pspec <- portfolio.spec(assets=funds) pspec <- add.constraint(portfolio=pspec, type="dollar_neutral") pspec <- add.constraint(portfolio=pspec, type="transaction_cost", ptc=0.01, enabled=TRUE) pspec <- add.objective(portfolio=pspec, type="return", name="mean") pspec <- add.objective(portfolio=pspec, type="risk", name="var", risk_aversion=1.0) opt_qu <- optimize.portfolio(R=R,portfolio=pspec, optimize_method="ROI", trace=TRUE)
The documentation on PortfolioAnalytics states that " Proportional transaction cost constraints can be implemented for quadratic utility and minimum variance problems using the ROI solver", However, I get the following error:
Error in ROI::L_constraint(L = Amat, dir = dir, rhs = rhs) : all(c(dim_L, n_dir) == n_L_constraints) is not TRUE
I have further debugged to identify that constraints.R, line no. 357, in ROI package throws this error when dimensions do not match. The problem is in function gmv_opt_ptc() function, the line no. 87
dir <- dir[!is.infinite(rhs)]
doesn't really resize to the size of rhs vector. Could anyone help with this error, in general?
