### Constraints in a Mean-Variance Optimization Case

Might be a repeat question, feel free to close if it is. I am trying to perform a mean-variance optimization (maximizing the Sharpe ratio) for lets say 5 assets. Besides the weights of the assets ...

### Determine expected geometric return from Sharpe ratio

I'm trying to calculate the expected annual geometric return, given that I'm provided with an annual Sharpe ratio (0.5), the yield on a 3-month T-Bill (5%) (using this yield as a proxy for the risk-...

### Relationship between holding time and sharpe ratio

Let's say, for simplicity, I have a long-only portfolio $P$ that consists solely of equity. The average holding period for each asset is $n$ days. Are there research papers or theorems that ...

### How does one show that the Sharpe Ratio is closely related to the t-statistic of the mean differential return?

I see it being mentioned in many places, such as here, and even here. How should I interpret it? Suppose I have an array of signals, I, and returns of those signals, R Then my regression is R = a + BI ...

### Does imbalance not impact returns-calculation weighing when calculating the Sharpe Ratio of an equity Long-Short strategy?

I'm calculating the Sharpe Ratio for a simple equity long-short strategy (short stock S and use proceeds to buy stock L). Obviously this is self-financing. In "https://quant.stackexchange.com/...

### Why isn't the Sharpe Ratio computed on the cumulative return rather than return mean? [closed]

I have learnt that the Sharpe ratio is a measure of the annualized return rate mean over the annualised standard deviation of return rate distribution. I also learnt that when compounding, the mean of ...

### alternatives of sharpe's ratio with respect to maximum-drawdown(mdd)

Given a window, expected return divided by standard deviation is sharpe's ratio. But I want to form another figure for mdd-adjusted return. mdd divided by expected return can be suggested but it seems ...
