### James Simons (Renaissance Technologies Corp.) and his model [closed]

I think some of you know the famous billionaire mathematician James Simons. Somewhat as Warren Buffet, this guy cracked the Wall Street with a mathematical model (essentially most statistic and a bit ...

### Optimal trading strategy in toy world of simple Hidden Markov model with Gaussians

I want to solve the following optimization problem: What is the optimal general trading strategy (in the sense of the highest Sharpe ratio) on a time series which is the result of a Hidden Markov ...

### Hidden Markov Models methods for selecting optimal number of states

Package RHmm (R) I have a vector which I fit into a hmm model in an attempt to select an optimal number of states for a hidden markov model. ...

### MSGARCH package on R

I am using the MSGARCH package on R to fit a Markov switching GARCH model. I fit the GARCH model using fit.MLE (so standard Maximum Likelihood), using three regimes. The parameters are estimated and ...

### Markov switching model estimation

We are testing Markov switching models to forecast risk regimes, similar to the paper by Kritzman, Page and Turkington. We find that in some cases the Baum-Welch algorithm converges very slowly or not ...

### When predicting Forex price using HMM what, typically, are the states and what are the observations?

I understand their abstract definition but having trouble applying the HMM method to Forex prices. What should the observations be? Then what should the states be (like "hot", "cold", etc.)?

### modeling regime switching for Correlation matrix

I am trying to estimate covariance in multiple time series. However, I want to do this using a regime-switching framework. So, I start with fitting a GARCH(1,1) model and then de-volatalize the series....

### Asset allocation problem using Hidden Markov Model

I am recently getting more interested in Hidden Markov Models (HMM) and its application on financial assets to understand their behavior. But what captured my attention the most is the use of asset ...
