What happened on ArXiv: (1) Deep BSDE solver (with jumps), (2) there are not a lot of quant paper written on how to model and predict using heterogeneous graphs, here is one don’t let the type of data put you off, it is a pretty good idea, (3) the FIN-RL team has produced good software so I am sure the recent paper would be good.
Note that the second ArXiv section (Sanity) is the top ArXiv papers from all the non-quant sections. The hope is that it could help inspire research in the quant space.
In SSRN land, (1) what does the performance of mean-variance efficient portfolios of monthly option look like (good). (2) not yet out, but looking forward to the release of ‘bonds with benefits’ by researchers at Quoniam. (3) Freshly released by researchers at TUM/Robeco the cross-section of emerging stock returns (using ML of course). (4) is there a crypto carry? on futures (5) Mihai Cucuringu and team at Oxford Stats forecasts realized covariances using graph-based methods.
And a few other tidbits, ESG factors inpact on sovereign bond markets. Gautier Marti’s slides on financial markets. Here we have 200-years of news-based sentiment. In podcast land, A discussion around alternatives designed to overcome the pitfalls of neural networks from Risk.net.
