Market Models: A Guide to Financial Data Analysis
In part 1, Carol Alexander brings many new insights to the pricing and hedging of options with her understanding of volatility and correlation, and the uncertainty which surrounds these key determinants of option portfolio risk. Modelling the market risk of portfolios is covered in part 2 where the main focus is on a linear algebraic approach; the covariance matrix and principal component analysis are developed as key tools for the analysis of financial systems. The traditional time series econometric approach is explained in part 3, with coverage ranging from the application cointegration to long-short equity hedge funds, to high-frequency data prediction using neural networks and nearest neighbour algorithms . Throughout this text the emphasis is on understanding concepts and implementing solutions. It has been designed to be accessible to a very wide audience: the coverage is comprehensive and complete and the technical appendix makes the book largely self-contained.
Accounting Concepts is a new textbook/workbook that provides full coverage of AS 91174 (2.1). It has been specifically structured to assist teachers and students achieve excellence. AS 91174 (2.1) is a demanding achievement standard that requires students to understand and then apply relatively complex concepts. It is based on the NZ Framework 2011, which is a document that students at this level find difficult to read and understand fully. NZQA statistics of NCEA results for the precursor 2.1 in 2009-11 indicate that this achievement standard is the most poorly executed of all the Level 2 achievement standards, with less than 10% of candidates achieving excellence every year. The assessment reports indicate that achievement with excellence requires candidates to use resource material intelligently to link the context to accounting concepts required in the question (2011). A Teacher’s Guide is also available for seperate purchase.
