## Interactive reports in R with knitr and RStudio

May 15, 2012
By

Last Saturday I met the guys from RStudio at the R in Finance conference in Chicago. I was curious to find out what RStudio could offer. In the past I have used mostly Emacs + ESS for editing R files. Well, and what a surprise it was. JJ, Joe and Josh ...

As the researchpuzzler highlights in “a bad bet”, US bonds were a popular subject at the CFA Institute Annual Conference.  While US Bonds have been in an amazing 30 year run (see previous posts Lattice Explore Bonds, Bond Market as a Casino Ga...

## Plotting data and distribution simultaneously (with ggplot2)

May 14, 2012
By

Ever wanted to see at a glance the distribution of your data across different axes? It happens often to me, and R allows to build a nice plot composition - This is my latest concoction. I used ggplot2 here, but equivalent graphics can be made...

## The whinny of the exponential horse

May 13, 2012
By

A Poisson process provides a good model for events that happen rarely. That's what von Bortkiewicz realized in 1898 when he modeled deaths by horse kick in Prussian cavalry; since it would be ungentlemanly to actually kill my readers, I instead represent the events in a Poisson process using a horse's whinny.

My own version of bubble plot (part 1)During one of my projects, I found myself in need of visualizing more than 3 dimensions at once. Three-dimensional graphs are not a good solution, usually - they will need to be properly oriented, for a start, ad that's tricky.So, I started looking at bubble plots. The size of the bubble can...

$Discovering power laws and removing “shit”$

Imagine you perform a statistical analysis on a time series of stock market data. After some transformation, averaging, and “renormalization” you find that the resulting quantity, let’s call it , behaves as a function of time like . Since you are a physicist you get excited because you have just discovered a power law. Physicists

## Simple Moving Average Strategy with a Volatility Filter: Follow-Up Part 3

May 10, 2012
By

In part 2, we saw that adding a volatility filter to a single instrument test did little to improve performance or risk adjusted returns. How will the volatility filter impact a multiple instrument portfolio? In part 3 of the follow up, I will evaluate the impact of the volatility filter on a multiple instrument test. … Continue reading...

## Simple Spatial Correlograms for Cross-Country Analysis in R

May 9, 2012
By

Accounting for temporal dependence in econometric analysis is important, as the presence of temporal dependence violates the assumption that observations are independent units. Historically, much less attention has been paid to correcting for spatial dependence, which, if present, also violates this independence assumption. The comparability of temporal and spatial dependence is useful for illustrating why

## Mapping US Radiation Levels in R

May 8, 2012
By

I have posted previously about the open data available on Socrata (https://opendata.socrata.com/), and I was looking at the site again today when I stumbled upon a listing of levels of various radioactive isotopes by US city and state. The data is available at https://opendata.socrata.com/Government/Sorted-RadNet-Laboratory-Analysis/w9fb-tgv6 . You will need to click export, and then download it as a...
