Intertemporal Asset Pricing: Evidence from Germany by Bernd Meyer

By Bernd Meyer

In the mid-eighties Mehra and Prescott confirmed that the danger top rate earned by means of American shares can't kind of be defined by way of traditional capital industry versions. utilizing time additive software, the saw danger pre­ mium can in basic terms be defined by way of unrealistically excessive probability aversion parameters. This phenomenon is widely known because the fairness top rate puzzle. almost immediately aft­ erwards it used to be additionally saw that the secure fee is simply too low relative to the saw chance top class. This essay is the 1st one to research those puzzles within the German capital industry. It starts off with a radical dialogue of the to be had theoretical mod­ els after which is going directly to practice quite a few empirical experiences at the German capital marketplace. After discussing typical houses of the pricing kernel in which destiny money flows are translated into securities costs, numerous multi­ interval equilibrium types are investigated for his or her implied pricing kernels. the start line is a consultant investor who optimizes his make investments­ ment and intake coverage through the years. One vital implication of time additive software is the id of relative probability aversion and the inverse in­ tertemporal elasticity of substitution. when you consider that this identification is at odds with fact, the essay is going directly to talk about recursive personal tastes which violate the predicted application precept yet permit to split relative hazard aversion and intertemporal elasticity of substitution.

Longstaff (1995)). Neumann and Schlag (1996) test this martingale restriction for stock index options on the Deutscher Aktienindex (DAX) traded on the Deutsche Terminborse (DTB). e. the martingale restriction is violated. Further analyses show that the number of options used in the estimation process as well as the time to maturity and the average moneyness are significant determinants for the amount of the pricing error. A disadvantage of this method is that distributional assumptions must be made and that it presumes that the model used to infer the moments of the implied distribution is true and used by the market participants for valuing options.

Using option pricing principles, Hansen and Jagannathan (1991, pp. 243-6) show how to derive a variance bound incorporating the no-arbitrage condition. Unlike the bounds derived above, this bound cannot be expressed simply as a function of the first moment of the market pricing kernel and the first and second moment of the return on the asset. Instead, the calculation of the bound may require a nonquadratic optimization problem to be solved for each value of E{ ¢}. Not surprisingly, Hansen and Jagannathan reveal that this bound is more restrictive than the bound without the no-arbitrage condition.

In an equilibrium representative-agent framework the market pricing kernel is related to the preferences of the representative agent l . Constant elasticity of the market pricing kernel with respect to the price of the aggregate wealth portfolio is closely related to constant relative risk aversion of the representative agent. , the so-called preference-free Black-Scholes model, imply preferences with constant relative risk aversion in models with a representative agent. The result that the Black-Scholes model requires constant relative risk aversion of the representative agent in a general equilibrium model was also obtained by Bick (1987).
