If the bulk of returns are pushed to the right, then thedistribution has positive skewness.

The Volatility Problem, Javaheri introduces theconcept of various parametric SV models and examines literature onthe subject of non-deterministic volatility.

Here, you’ll receivein-depth information on the relationship between volatility and thestock and derivatives markets, detailed insights on Brownian motionfor stock price returns, and option pricing techniques such asinversion of the Fourier transform and mixing Monte Carlo.

You’llalso gain invaluable knowledge on a variety of models, from localvolatility and stochastic volatility models to pure-jumpmodels.

The Inference Problem, Javaheri tackles the notionof inference or parameter estimation for parametric SVmodels–briefly analyzing cross-sectional inference and thenfocusing on time-series inference.

Here you’ll discover how toestimate model parameters using two possible sets of data: Finally, in Section 3: The Consistency Problem, Javaheri showsyou how to apply parametric inference methodologies to a fewassets.
