RsV: Realized semivariance of highfrequency return series.

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

Function returns Realized semivariance, defined in Barndorff-Nielsen et al. (2008).

Function returns two outcomes: 1.Downside realized semivariance and 2.Upside realized semivariance.

Assume there is N equispaced returns in period t. Let r_{t,i} be a return (with i=1, …,N) in period t.

Then, the rSV is given by

\mbox{rSVdownside}_{t}= ∑_{i=1}^{N} (r_{t,i})^2 \ \times \ I [ r_{t,i} <0 ]

\mbox{rSVupside}_{t}= ∑_{i=1}^{N} (r_{t,i})^2 \ \times \ I [ r_{t,i} >0 ]

Usage

1
rSV (rdata,align.by=NULL,align.period=NULL,makeReturns=FALSE,...)

Arguments

rdata

a zoo/xts object containing all returns in period t for one asset.

align.by

a string, align the tick data to "seconds"|"minutes"|"hours"

align.period

an integer, align the tick data to this many [seconds|minutes|hours].

makeReturns

boolean, should be TRUE when rdata contains prices instead of returns. FALSE by default.

...

additional arguments.
