QuanTek Econometrics Software

Econometrics Research

Welcome to the Omicron Research Institute home page.  Omicron Research Institute is devoted to the study of the Econometrics of the financial markets, using established techniques of Digital Signal Processing and Time Series Analysis.  These techniques are incorporated in our QuanTek trading and investing software for Windows, designed for the individual or institutional investor or trader.   This software incorporates a new, sophisticated Wavelet Adaptive filter, along with Wavelet-based indicators, as well as a complete set of statistical tests to verify the effectiveness of the filter and the corresponding indicators.

QuanTek Econometrics Software

QuanTek is a new type of trading and investing software that is based on the latest ideas from Econometrics and Time Series Analysis.  In particular, QuanTek makes extensive use of the theory of Adaptive (Wavelet) Linear Prediction filters to make a Price Projection based on correlation in the past price data.  From the expected return and risk (volatility) of each security in the portfolio an Optimal Portfolio is calculated and displayed.

QuanTek has many unique statistical tests and displays which can be applied to portfolios of stocks, ETFs, mutual funds, or indexes data.  In particular, the program contains correlation tests which are used to test the effectiveness of the Price Projection from the Adaptive (Wavelet) Linear Prediction filters. There is also a Portfolio Report which displays the expected return and risk on various time scales for the securities in the portfolio, along with the results of the Optimal Portfolio calculation.

Model Portfolio: We have started a new Model Portfolio page with a Portfolio Report containing a listing of the portfolio, along with many screen shots of the securities in the portfolio. We plan to do model trading in the portfolio every weekend at the close price for Friday. We have done this the past several weekends, and the Portfolio Report (2018-12-07) is now available for viewing:

Model Portfolio

In the Portfolio Report you can view both the Model Portfolio and the Optimal Portfolio. The Optimal Portfolio, which consists of all the securities we are tracking at the moment, is optimized based on the expected return from the 2048-day Long-Term Trend, along with the risk based on the measured average absolute deviation of the prices.
