Big Data and Risk Management in Financial Markets (Part II)

Apr 19 4:16am Datafloq
I. Introduction to forecasting If you missed the first part, I suggest you read it before going through this article. It gives a good introduction as well as an overview of traditional risk management and big data simulation. This article is instead more focused on big data forecasting. There are nowadays several new techniques or methods borrowed from other disciplines which are used by financial practitioners with the aim of predicting future market outcomes. Eklund and Kapetanios (2008) provided a good review of all the new predictive methods and I am borrowing here their classification of forecasting methods, which divides techniques into four groups: single equation models that use the whole datasets; models that use only a subset of the whole database, even though a complete set is provided; models that use partial datasets to estimate multiple forecasts averaged later on; and finally, multivariate models that use the whole datasets. II. Single equation models The first group is quite wide and includes common techniques used differently, such as ordinary least square (OLS) regression or Bayesian regression, as well as new advancements in the field, as in the case of factor models. In the OLS model, when the time series dimension exceeds the number of observations, the generalized inverse has to be used in order to estimate the parameters.

The Dirty Secret About Predictive Analytics

Apr 18 9:56pm Datafloq
For some time now, predictive analytics has been hailed as the “next big thing.” A quick Google search for “predictive analytics” shows that everyone from Forbes to The Wall Street Journal and beyond have written about how predictive analytics is going to “transform business” and “turn analytics on its head” and even “make BI obsolete”. However, despite years of optimism, the analytics market is still dominated by visualization and business intelligence software such as Tableau, Qlik, and Birst. If predictive analytics is the next best thing, why isn’t everyone using it? Predictive analytics examines data and tells you what it is likely to happen in the future. It promises to give you the power to “predict the future of your business” and to “know what will happen next.” And current technology is capable of making thousands, even millions, of predictions each second. Sounds pretty darn impressive. But the dirty secret is that much of the automated predictive analytics technology on offer simply isn’t very useful. Why? Knowing what’s going to happen next is nice, but if you don’t know why, you won’t know what to do about it, and it will be of little value. Consider the simple case of customer churn. With predictive analytics, you will know ...Read More on Datafloq...
