Study Notes: Measuring Return, Volatility, and Correlation

Topic Progress:

Chapter 12: Measuring Return, Volatility, and Correlation Study Notes contains 14 pages covering the following learning objectives:

* Calculate, distinguish, and convert between simple and continuously compounded returns.

* Define and distinguish between volatility, variance rate, and implied volatility.

* Describe how the first two moments may be insufficient to describe non-normal distributions.

* Explain how the Jarque-Bera test is used to determine whether returns are normally distributed.

* Describe the power law and its use for non-normal distributions.

* Define correlation and covariance and differentiate between correlation and dependence.

* Describe properties of correlations between normally distributed variables when using a one-factor model.

After reviewing these notes on you will be able to apply what you learned with practice questions.
