Live Webinar: Overview of Quantopian-Based Paper on Momentum w/Volatility Timing Online

Aug 21, 2019 · New York, United States of America

In this webinar, Yulia Malitskaia will discuss her Quantopian-based research presented in the paper "Momentum with Volatility Timing”. The paper addresses the active topic of factor timing for dynamic multi-factor investing by introducing the volatility-timed winners approach that applies past volatilities as a timing predictor to mitigate momentum factor underperformance. The proposed approach was confirmed with Spearman rank correlation. Furthermore, the paper demonstrated the performance of the proposed method in relation to the conventional cross-sectional momentum factor, volatility scaling, risk-based asset allocation, and time-series momentum.

Overall, the study addresses three momentum instantiations: factor, the basis for index construction, and trading strategy. Quantopian has been instrumental for conducting this composite study and the webinar provides an overview of the different aspects of the research alongside the Quantopian platform and tools.
