RiskButler.com can include different prediction methods and allows for customized methods for very advanced business clients. The below is a preliminary explanation.
Stochastic processes coupled with the Monte Carlo simulation method, in one form or the other, are today used by the largest global financial banking institutions in controlling and handling the institutions' own internal portfolios.
This groups assets according to one or more criteria - taking all criteria into consideration at the same time. A numerical method from statistics is used for the numerical calculations. The method is called Cluster analysis and generally seeks to group objects into classes so that "similar" ones are in the same class.
Two criteria are currently available: Variance and correlation.
Assets which have a variance of zero, or for other reason undefined correlation are left out of the analysis.
Two types of Dendogram diagrams are currently available, more diagrams will be available in a later version of RiskButler.com.
The historic estimation period is the latest 150 weekdays.
More dimensions than two i.e. currently variance and correlation are planned to be added later. These can be price trends, company market values (for shares), P/E values (for shares) etc.
