The course is meant to deepen the technical knowledge of the econometric mehods used in the analysis of financial markets. Neccessary prerequisites are Econometrics and Statistics
Obiettivi formativi
The objective of this course is to provide a comprehensive and systematic account of financial econometric models and their applications to modeling and prediction of financial time series data, focusing on asset returns and volatilities. The students will learn the analytical tools needed for the specification and estimation of econometric models with financial data. Students at the end of the course will have a working knowledge of financial time series data and gain expertise in the software to conduct the analyses.
