The econometric methods used to analyze financial markets have experienced increasing importance in recent years. This course describes the econometric methods now widely used in financial industry to deal with estimating and evaluating asset pricing models, equilibrium and derivative pricing, market microstructure, options, bonds and the term-structure of interest rates. A special emphasis will be made to model nonlinearities and other "anomalies" of financial data. Fat-tailed (Tempered stable) and stochastic volatility models will be discussed.
The main topics of the course are:
• Tempered Stable Process and Levy Process
• Option Pricing under Levy Process Models
• GARCH Option Pricing Model with Tempered Stable Innovations
