Trading strategies based on estimates of conditional distribution of stock returns
Sedlačík, Adam ; Baruník, Jozef (advisor) ; Vošvrda, Miloslav (referee)
In this thesis, a new trading strategy is proposed. By the help of quantile regression, the conditional distribution functions of stock market returns are estimated. Based on the knowledge of the distribution the strategy produced buying and selling signals which together with a weight function derived from exponential moving averages determines how much and when to buy or sell. The strategy performs better than the market in terms of absolute return and the Sharpe ratio in-sample, but it does not provide satisfactory results out-of-sample.
Is it worth investing in Czech mutual funds?
Sedlačík, Adam ; Křehlík, Tomáš (advisor) ; Pištora, Vojtěch (referee)
In the Czech Republic many people do not invest. Therefore, we try to find out whether Czech mutual funds offer a good opportunity for investment on the Czech market in comparison with American funds. We use Sharpe ratio, Treynor index, Jensen's alpha and Modern portfolio theory to find this out. We conclude that Czech bond mutual funds are safe place to put your money in even though they provide small but almost certain returns. Czech stock funds perform worse than their American counterparts in terms of Sharpe ratio, Treynor index and Jesen's alpha. Applying modern portfolio theory proved to be beneficial in case of mutual funds in the Czech Republic. Powered by TCPDF (
