"Solving Factor Models in fPortfolio" was the topic in Diethelm Würtz' last econophysics lecture at ETH Zurich (May 2010). Since this may be of general interest we will give in the following some hints how to do it.
"Rmetrics2AMPL" is a project under development to make professional solvers available for portfolio design and optimization with R/Rmetrics. Rmetrics2AMPL provides functions and tools to create and extend a library of model, data, and run files for the AMPL environment, a comprehensive and powerful algebraic modeling language for linear and nonlinear optimization problems, in discrete or continuous variables.
We have uploaded a short documentation which summarizes the concepts and methods behind the S4 class timeDate used in Rmetrics for financial data with time and holiday management.
"Portfolio Risk Surfaces" is an initiative to explore the feasible set of a portfolio and to make risk and related measures visible across the feasible set. The resulting graphs can be considered as surfaces showing the diversification or concentration of risk for any feasible portfolio.
"Stability Watch" is a report from Rmetrics offering views on the stability of historical economic indicators and financial time series. The report helps everybody to watch non-stationarities, instabilities and stressed scenarios in historical time series.
We have added to the Rmetrics fBasics package functions for the generalized lambda distribution with infinite support as an alternative distribution for modeling financial return series with power law tails.
We are proud to announce a new eBook entitled Financial Market Data for R/Rmetrics. The book introduces how to download and manage economic and financial market data from the Internet.
The Rmetrics package fImport has now a function "read.lynx()" which simplifies the download of economic and financial market data from the Internet and the conversion of the data records into time series objects.
