FINANCE

Build Status NPM version NGN Dependencies

This module contains an implementation of Markowitz algorithm for the portfolio optimization, a routine for retrieving historical prices from Yahoo, statistical information for stocks and a routine for calculating implied volatility using Black and Scholes formula.

Example

See examples directory.

For a frontend, see node-conpa.

Installation

To install with npm:

npm install finance

Tested with node 0.10.26, R 3.1.0 and Rserve 1.7.3.

Notes

Before using crm methods, you need to configure the details of the persistence system. The portfolios are saved on a CouchDB instance. The configuration allows a live and testing environment.

finance.crm.configure({
    liveDomain: "x.x.x",
    liveUrl: "http://key1:pass1@p.c.com",
    liveDb: "myLiveDBName",
    testingUrl: "http://key2:pass2@p.c.com",
    testingDb: "myTestingDBName",
    design: "designName",
});

In the support directory there is a script to install the design document with the views used in the dashboard tab.

Methods

    • ps portfolio risk.

Config

  • host hostname or ip address of R instance.
  • port port of Rserve instance.
  • user username for remote connection of Rserve instance.
