MFIT5009: Optimization in Fintech (Due: 27/02/2021) Homework #1

Instructor: Daniel Palomar

Name: Student name(s), Netid: NetId(s)

Course Policy: Read all the instructions below carefully before you start working on the assignment and before you make a submission.

Please typeset your submissions in LATEX, RMarkdown or Jupyter notebook. Please include your name and student ID with submission. Submit your homework in the form of pdf or html via Canvas.

Assignments are due by 11:59 pm of February 27th.

No cheating will be tolerated, so make sure you complete the homework on your own.

Only R and Python are allowed for the implementation. You should also show the code for how to generate the function and remember to set seed if needed so that your code can be replicated.

Problem 1: Practice with Solvers

Please read this website carefully before you start solving the problems. (a) Solve the following optimization problem:

Here, we consider

maximize

Σ

subject to

wT Σw

Ljk ≤ Σjk ≤ Ujk,

j,k = 1,…,n.

0.1

0.5 −0.3 0.1 0.1 −0.1 0.5 0.7

0.2 0.7 0.4 w=0.2, L=−0.5 0.1 0.2, U=0.4 0.1 0.5.

Please show the optimal value of Σ and all the code you use to solve the problem. (b) Solve the following optimization problem:

Here, we consider

minimize λmax(X) − λmin(X) X∈S+n

subject to trace (AX) = 1.

91 83 85 54 A=83 102 84 56.

85 84 150 72 54 56 72 52

0.2 0.1 0.1

Please show the optimal value of X and all the code you use to solve the problem.

(c) Solve the unconstrained optimization problem with piecewise-linear objective function

minimize maxi{aix + bi}, x∈R

where a = (a1,a2,a3,a4,a5) = (−2,−4,−8,1,3) and b = (b1,b2,b3,b4,b5) = (−1,−6,−1,−1,−12). Compare the results with the solution of following optimization problem:

minimize t x∈R

subjectto t≥aix+bi, i=1,…,5. 1

In this problem we need to import SP500 index from Jan 3, 2005 to Dec 31, 2016.

(a) Convert daily data to monthly data by the index to the first day of the month. Then plot the corresponding monthly prices using ‘ggplot2’.

(b) Compute the 10-day simple moving average and 10-day exponential moving average for daily closing prices, draw them on the same figure.

In statistics, the Elastic net uses a regularization that linearly combines the L1 and L2 penalties. The es- timates from the elastic net method can be denoted as

βˆ =argminf(β)+λ1∥β∥1 +λ2∥β∥2, β

where f(β) is the loss function without regularization subject to the optimization variable β and λ1,λ2 are the coefficients to control the magnitude of penalty. Now we consider a linear model with

f(β) = ∥y − Xβ∥2

wherey∈Rn,X∈Rn×p,andβ∈Rp. PleasefindthedataofXandywithn=500andp=200viaCanvas,

solve the problem with different values of (λ1,λ2), then fill in the table by computing

p

I(|βi⋆| ≤ ε), i=1

where β⋆ is the corresponding optimal solution, ε is set to be 10−3, and the indicator function is defined as

⋆ 1 if|βi⋆|≤ε, I(|βi | ≤ ε) = 0 otherwise.
