  • Topic:
High Frequency Financial Econometrics using Matlab

Course Overview

COURSE DATE: 25-26 April 2018

This course provides an in-depth training in using Matlab in the analysis of high freuqncy financial data. Advances in computer power and data technology have led to the introduction of high frequency data. These data are vital in understanding issues pertaining to market microstructure noise, and permits the calculation of non-parametric intraday measures of variation that are superior to parametric measures based on daily data. The sheer size of this type of data often pause huge challenges to both researchers and practitioners. As such this course aims, using Matlab and state of the art high frequency data from TICKDATA database to highlight the best techniques and practices to overcome the empirical challenges of analysing high frequency data.

General Objectives: 

  • To demonstrate the empirical techniques and methods employed to analyse high frequency data with special emphasis on the calculation of realised measures, forecasting and Monte Carlo methods and design

Specific Objectives:

  • Learn how to write efficient codes in Matlab
  • Be able to create your own functions in Matlab
  • Learn how to compute realised measures of volatility and generate forecasts
  • Develop an understanding of the theoretical foundations and mathematical models of continuous / discontinuous time modelling
  • Monte Carlo Methods, Design and Implementation
