an opinion question

Erin Hodgess-2
Dear R Finance People:

At one point in time, I knew a little bit about finance/econometrics; in
terms of copulas, heavy tailed distributions, etc.

Now I find myself needing to update my knowledge of finance.  What are the
best resources that you might recommend, please?

I was looking at some of the slides/html's from the R/Finance meeting and
they look fascinating, particularly the Tessera.


Thank you for your help.
Sincerely,
Erin

Hi Erin: Eric Zivot's S+Finmetrics book provides a good intro to the
various topics. It's probably more than 10 years old now but not much has
changed as far as the topics.
( maybe techniques have ).  Then, if you want to dig deeper into any of the
topics he presents, he's got the references in each chapter. There are
other R based books that
are more recent but I can't say anything about them because I haven't
looked at them. Good luck.

P.S: For me, Hamilton's text is still the bible for non-dynamic time
series. Nerlove, Grether
and Carvalho is  a great dynamic time series book that doesn't get much
street cred.
I guess because it's  contains mostly farming applications ?
