    “We are pleased with the jury’s finding that Stephen Ferrone defrauded Immunosyn’s investors with misleading statements in the company’s filings and press releases and his own speeches and interviews.  We will continue to hold executives accountable when their companies provide misleading information and fail to give investors a full and honest picture of what’s happening with their products.”read more...

    In his stimulating article on the reasons for two puzzling observations about the behaviour of interest rates, exchange rates and the rate of inflation, Charles Engel (2016) puts forward an explanation that rests on the concept of a non-pecuniary liquidity return on assets. Albeit intriguing the analysis struggles to account for a number of facts which are familiar to participants of the foreign exchange and bond markets. Reconciling these facts in conjunction with a careful dissection of the "puzzle" to begin with, shows that the forward premium puzzle just does not exist, at least not in its canonical form.

    Building on a prominent agent-based model, we present a new structural stochastic volatility asset pricing model of fundamentalists vs. chartists where the prices are determined based on excess demand. Specifically, this allows for modelling stochastic interactions between agents, based on a herding process corrected by a price misalignment, and incorporating strong noise components in the agents' demand. The model's parameters are estimated using the method of simulated moments, where the moments reflect the basic properties of the daily returns of a stock market index. In addition, for the first time we apply a (parametric) bootstrap method in a setting where the switching between strategies is modelled using a discrete choice approach. As we demonstrate, the resulting dynamics replicate a rich set of the stylized facts of the daily financial data including: heavy tails, volatility clustering, long memory in absolute returns, as well as the absence of autocorrelation in raw returns, volatility-volume correlations, aggregate Gaussianity, concave price impact and extreme price events.

    We consider a defaultable asset whose risk-neutral pricing dynamics are described by an exponential L\'evy-type martingale. This class of models allows for a local volatility, local default intensity and a locally dependent L\'evy measure. We present a pricing method for Bermudan options based on an analytical approximation of the characteristic function combined with the COS method. Due to a special form of the obtained characteristic function the price can be computed using a Fast Fourier Transform-based algorithm resulting in a fast and accurate calculation. The Greeks can be computed at almost no additional computational cost. Error bounds for the approximation of the characteristic function as well as for the total option price are given.

    We derive an explicit formula for likelihood function for Gaussian VARMA model conditioned on initial observables where the moving-average (MA) coefficients are scalar. For fixed MA coefficients the likelihood function is optimized in the autoregressive variables $\Phi$'s by a closed form formula generalizing regression calculation of the VAR model with the introduction of an inner product defined by MA coefficients. We show the assumption of scalar MA coefficients is not restrictive and this formulation of the VARMA model shares many nice features of VAR and MA model. The gradient and Hessian could be computed analytically. The likelihood function is preserved under the root invertion maps of the MA coefficients. We discuss constraints on the gradient of the likelihood function with moving average unit roots. With the help of FFT the likelihood function could be computed in $O((kp+1)^2T +ckT\log(T))$ time. Numerical calibration is required for the scalar MA variables only. The approach can be generalized to include additional drifts as well as integrated components. We discuss a relationship with the Borodin-Okounkov formula and the case of infinite MA components.
