1. 1. Center for Financial Studies at the Goethe University PhD Mini-course Frankfurt, 25 January 2013 Financial Networks VI. Correlation Networks Dr. Kimmo Soramäki Founder and CEO FNA, www.fna.fi
2. 2. Agenda V. Inferring Links • Prices and returns • Controlling for common factors • Correlation and dependence • Significant correlations • Multiple Comparisons VI. Correlation Networks • Distance and Hierarchical Clustering • Minimum Spanning Tree & PMFG • Other filtering • Layout algorithms 2
3. 3. Hierarchical structure in financial markets 3
4. 4. Minimum Spanning Tree A spanning tree of a graph is a subgraph that: 1. is a tree and 2. connects all the nodes together Length of a tree is the sum of its links. Minimum spanning tree (MST) is a spanning tree with shortest length. MST reflects the hierarchical structure of the correlation matrix
5. 5. MST and Hierarchical Structure Source: R.N. Mantegna (1999). Hierarchical structure in nancial markets, Eur. Phys. J. B 11, 193-197 5
6. 6. 36 Single Linkage Clustering • A method for hierarchical clustering • Clusters based on similarity or distance • SLINK algorithm R. Sibson (1973). SLINK: an optimally efficient algorithm for the single-link cluster method. The Computer Journal (British Computer Society) 16 (1): 30–34. 6

9. 9. Radial tree -layout • Calculates coordinates for radial layout as presented in Bachmaier, Brandes and Schlieper (2005) • The layout allows definition of each arc length • Specific parameters of command radialtreeviz: – Arc length property (-p) : Arc property defining arc length. Optional. – Root vertex (-rootvertex) : Id of root vertex. The root vertex is placed in the middle of the screen. Due to the repositioning of the tree, nodes may be placed outside the canvas in other than the first network. Optional. – Optimal rotation (-rotation) : Rotates layout to minimize sum of vertex distances between subsequent networks. Optional. By default 'false'. – Scaling (-scale) : Scale of visualization: value/pixel. Christian Bachmaier, Ulrik Brandes, and Barbara Schlieper (2005). Drawing Phylogenetic Trees. Department of Computer & Information Science, University of 9 Konstanz, Germany

11. 11. Asset Trees Size of node reflects volatility (variance) of returns Links between nodes reflect 'backbone' correlations - short link = high correlation - long link = low correlation 11
12. 12. Circle Tree -visualization • Calculates coordinates for circle tree layout as presented in Bachmaier, Brandes and Schlieper (2005) • As before but instead of radialtreeviz: circletreeviz -vlabel vertex_id -vsize stdev -transition 3000 -ahover correlation -saveas daxviz-MST-circle 12
13. 13. Planar Maximally Filtered Graph Node size scales with degree • A complex graph with loops and cliques of up to 4 elements. It can be drawn on a planar surface without link crossings. • MST is contained in PMFG M. Tumminello, T. Ast, T. Di Matteo and R. N. Mantegna (2005).

15. 15. Partial Correlation • Measures the degree of association between two random variables • What is the direct relationship between Adidas and Allianz, controlling for BASF, BAYER, ... ? • We build regression models for Adidas and Allianz and look at the correlation of their model residuals (i.e. wgat left unexplained by the other factors) -> Partial correltation 15

18. 18. NETS • Network Estimation for Time- Series • Forthcoming paper by Barigozzi and Brownlees • Estimates an unknown network structure from multivariate data • Captures both comtemporenous and serial dependence (partial correlations and lead/lag effects) 18
19. 19. Correlation filtering PMFG Balance between too much and too little information One of many methods to create networks from correlation/distance matrices – PMFGs, Partial Correlation Networks, Influence Networks, Granger Influence Network Causality, NETS, etc. New graph, information-theory, economics & statistics -based models are being actively developed 19
