Short Term Hedge Position Optimizer (Scripts) Publisher's description
from Kwame Awuah-Offei
Classical optimal hedge ratio concentrates on risk reduction and neglects strategic value maximization.
Classical optimal hedge ratio concentrates on risk reduction and neglects strategic value maximization. In this study, the authors use stochastic-optimization theories to formulate an optimal, short-term hedging scheme to mitigate risks while maximizing portfolio value. Stochastic spot and futures price models are used to simulate prices. The periodic optimal hedge ratios are determined using the stochastic-optimization algorithm. The algorithm is implemented in a Hedge-Position-Optimizer (HPO) program. The models were published in the International Journal of Risk Assessment and Management.
