Here's my favorite example of an intraday strategy on S&P500 futures that at least used to work: Intraday Share Price Volatility and Leveraged ETF Rebalancing I pull it out whenever people start ...

Such a complex question... Geometric Brownian Motion (GBM) will not typically work to aid one finding strategies based on technicals, as the pursuit of the technical trader is to find market ...

### conditional expectation of stochastic integral

What a great question! I've had a go at it below, I'd say I'm about 75% sure of the result I've got to but I'd love feedback from others. I'm going to use the definition of the Ito integral, \begin{...

### How to differentiate a brownian motion?

In order to apply Ito's lemma, your function needs to be a twice-differentiable function. There is no issue with the non-differentiability of the Wiener process. $\frac{dF}{dX}$ involves ...

### Why $W_{t}^3$ is not a martigale?(by Definition)

Note that, for $0 \leq s < t$, \begin{align*} W_t^3 &= (W_t-W_s+W_s)^3\\ &= (W_t-W_s)^3 + 3(W_t-W_s)^2 W_s + 3 (W_t-W_s) W_s^2 + W_s^3. \end{align*} Moreover, \begin{align*} E\big( (W_t-W_s)...

### Hawkes process intensity solution

Let us define the auxiliary process $\Lambda_t=e^{\kappa t}\lambda_t$. Note that: $$\Lambda_t = \kappa e^{\kappa t} \int_0^t(\rho_s-\lambda_s)ds+\delta e^{\kappa t}\int_0^tdN_t$$ Hence after a jump ...

### Expected value of exponential of hitting time of GBM

Let $W_t= -B_t$. Moreover, let $a= - \frac{r-\frac{1}{2}\sigma^2}{\sigma}$ and $b= -\frac{1}{\sigma}\ln \frac{S^*}{S_0}$. Then, as in this question, \begin{align*} \mathbb{P}\left(\tau \ge T \mid W_T\...
### Evaluating the SDE $dX_t = t\,dS_t$
Using Itô's Lemma, notice that: $$d(tS_t)=tdS_t+S_tdt=dX_t+S_tdt$$ Hence: $$X_t=tS_t-\int S_udu$$ Using independence of Brownian increments, $E(S_udW_u)=E(S_u)E(dW_u)=0$, and the chain rule for the ...
