Application of r-vine copula method in Istanbul stock market data: A case study for the construction sector

Farnoudkia, Hajar
Purutçuoğlu Gazi, Vilda
In the stock market, the relationship between the sectorial changes can be very informative in order to predict the changes in prices of assets from each sector. In order to understand these sectorial relations, various studies have been conducted. In one of the recent studies, the construction sector in Turkey was investigated in terms of its effect in other Turkish sectors since it is one of the leading sectors in Turkey and its assets have a significant impact in stock markets. Hereby, in this study we detect the sectorial relationship of the construction sector via the Regular vine, also known as R-Vine, approach. The R-Vine copula is a specific type of copula which enables us to be flexible in the distributional assumptions of the observations while stating their joint distribution function. By this way, we can investigate the structure of the country’s financial path, i.e., network, under a graphical model.

How does the stock market volatility change after inception of futures trading?
Esen, İnci; Danışoğlu, Seza; Department of Financial Mathematics (2007)
As the trading volume in TURKDEX, the first and only options and futures exchange in Turkey, increases, it becomes more important to have an understanding of the effect of stock index futures trading on the underlying spot market volatility. In this respect, this thesis analyzes the effect of ISE-National 30 index futures contract trading on the underlying stocks’ volatility. In this thesis, spot portfolio volatility is decomposed into two components and this decomposition is applied to a single-factor retu...
Local volatility model applied to BIST30 european warrants: pricing and hedging
Kirazoğlu, Zekiye Sıla; Sezer, Ali Devin; Department of Financial Mathematics (2016)
One of the basic observations on pricing options is that the assumption of constant volatility does not agree with data and market price data gives a volatility smile that depends on maturities and strike prices. The first model that developed to be compatible with this observation is the local volatility model. The purpose of this work is to study the performance of the local volatility model on BIST30 warrants and compare it to the standard Black Scholes model. To estimate the local volatility model from d...
Volatility indexes and an implementation of the Turkish BIST 30 index
Karakurt, Caner; Uğur, Ömür; Department of Financial Mathematics (2018)
In 1993, by representing of CBOE Vix, global financial markets met volatility indexes. In 2003, methodology of the CBOE Vix is updated and it took the form which used today. Day after day, volatility indexes have attracted more and more investors and financial institutions, and soon volatility indexes have succeeded in becoming one of the most followed financial indicators. Following these developments, many countries have introduced their implied volatility indexes by using CBOE Vix methodology or its vari...
Computation of Malliavin Greeks in Hybrid StochasticVolatility Models
Yılmaz, Bilgi; Yolcu Okur, Yeliz (2015-05-16)
Contrary to Black-Scholes model in stochastic volatility models, the stock price’s volatility assumed to be a stochastic process and the Brownian motions of volatility and stock price process are correlated with each other. Moreover, in some models, called hybrid stochastic volatility models, the interest rate also assumed to be a stochastic process. Because of the stochastic volatility, stochastic interest rate and correlated Brownian motions, a closed form solution for the Greeks of the options usually do...
Performance of hybrid machine learning algorithms on financial time series data
Sayın, Merve Gözde; Yozgatlıgil, Ceylan; Uğur, Ömür; Department of Financial Mathematics (2021-2-5)
Estimating stock indices that reflect the market has been an essential issue for a long time. Although various models have been studied in this direction, historically, statistical methods and then various machine learning methods have to introduced artificial intelligence into our lives. Related literature shows that neural networks and treebased models are mostly used. In this direction, in this thesis, four different models are examined. The first one is the most preferred neural network method for finan...
