This book introduces the idea of volatility as an asset class. Implied Volatility for individual U.S. Stocks are examined extensively. The first chapter defines the notion of implied volatility movements and its interaction with fundamental variables related to the underlying stocks. The second chapter introduces a stochastic implied volatility model for U.S. Stocks and shows how most stocks react to one easily measured common factor. This factor is very robust and liquid to trade. The final chapter examines the risk premia in straddle returns and how to hedge an options portfolios implied volatility risk.
In the context of exotic derivatives, arbitrage-free implied volatility surfaces are a crucial ingredient to sophisticated pricing routines. We use a non-linear optimization technique to fit an arbitrage-free implied volatility surface efficiently to market data. The fitting procedure is tailor-made for any analytic parametrization of the single volatility skews. We carry out this approach for a certain parametrization by implementing an Interior-Point method, discuss its shortcomings, potentials, as well as specific smoothing techniques. Besides all the theory, we give various fitting details and examples by using real market data.
This thesis explores the reasons behind why we dress the way we do. Is it to impress our peers, or it is to make a political statement? It investigates the social implications of clothing and how it is used to link you with your socio-economic background. Our clothes are our first impression and this thesis discusses which social persona's people want to portray through their clothing. Through out the thesis general theory is examined and addressed, followed by examples of various brands discussing what demographic wears them and why. There is then a detailed case study which takes a specific Irish sub culture and researches the process behind their clothing choices particularly which brands they buy. Overall it is a in-depth study into the importance of fashion as a form of socio-economic indication.

This book compares the efficacy of Black–Scholes implied volatility with model-free implied volatility in providing volatility forecasts in the framework of Canadian S&P/TSX 60 stock index option. In-sample volatility forecasts show that both MVX and VIXC significantly improve the fit of a GJR–GARCH(1,1) model. However, VIXC dominates MVX for predicting future volatility. Out-of-sample volatility forecasts also indicate that VIXC outperforms MVX for the 1-, 5-, 10-, and 22-day forecasting horizons. we also investigate the predictive power between VIXC and alternative volatility forecasts derived from historical index prices.We find that for time horizons lesser than 10-trading days, VIXC provides more accurate forecasts. However, for longer time horizons, the historical volatilities, particularly the random walk, provide better forecasts.
