  • I really like the covariance matrix analogy – however not so enamoured with statisitcal stress tests as a whole.

    When the market drops correlations change a lot (generally get closer to one) as new market information dwarves information about individual companies.

    I think you mention something similar elsewhere. Perhaps in the magazine article. Nice blog – keep up the good work!
