O cimento é um produto utilizado na maior parte das obras civis, sendo consumido, portanto, em todo o país. Apesar de ser um produto homogêneo e de seu processo produtivo ser simples, são necessários elevados investimentos iniciais na produção, o que tende a diminuir a quantidade de fabricantes. Os custos de transporte - relativamente altos em comparação aos preços finais do produto - também são mencionados como limitadores da competição nessa indústria. Esse trabalho pretende analisar três aspectos da competição nessa indústria no Brasil: os custos de transação e a probabilidade de arbitragem entre estados; a estrutura competitiva no varejo de construção civil; o impacto da diminuição tarifária no poder de mercado da firma localizada no estado do Amazonas e nos preços na região norte. Os custos de transação para envio de cimento de um estado a outro, ambos localizados na mesma região geográfica, e a probabilidade de arbitragem entre esses estados são estimados simultaneamente por meio de modelos de regressão com mudança (switching regression model). Os resultados mostram que os custos de transação variam de 5% a 27% do preço final do produto, sendo, portanto, altos. As probabilidades de arbitragem estimadas são bastante baixas...

#Paridade coberta de juros#Risco país#Cupom cambial#Juros - Brasil#Risco cambial#Taxa de juros#Países de risco (Economia) - Brasil#Modelos econométricos

O conceito de paridade coberta de juros sugere que, na ausência de barreiras para arbitragem
entre mercados, o diferencial de juros entre dois ativos, idênticos em todos os pontos
relevantes, com exceção da moeda de denominação, na ausência de risco de variação cambial
deve ser igual a zero. Porém, uma vez que existam riscos não diversificáveis, representados
pelo risco país, inerentes a economias emergentes, os investidores exigirão uma taxa de juros
maior que a simples diferença entre as taxas de juros doméstica e externa.
Este estudo tem por objetivo avaliar se o ajustamento das condições de paridade coberta de
juros por prêmios de risco é suficiente para a validação da relação de não-arbitragem para o
mercado brasileiro, durante o período de 2007 a 2010. O risco país contamina todos os ativos
financeiros emitidos em uma determinada economia e pode ser descrito como a somatória do
risco de default (ou risco soberano) e do risco de conversibilidade percebidos pelo mercado.
Para a estimação da equação de não arbitragem foram utilizadas regressões por Mínimos
Quadrados Ordinários, parâmetros variantes no tempo (TVP) e Mínimos Quadrados
Recursivos, e os resultados obtidos não são conclusivos sobre a validação da relação de
paridade coberta de juros...

This dissertation consists of three papers studying how firms allocate real and financial capital, and how taxes, the labor market and asymmetric information affect these allocation decisions. The first paper studies the response of business investment to taxes. I use the variation provided by recent reforms to the Mexican tax system, including the elimination of accelerated depreciation for investment outside the main metropolitan areas. I show that investment is very sensitive to tax changes (an elasticity of investment with respect to the user cost around -2.0), mainly due to the small open economy nature of Mexico: large responses of multinationals and large elasticity of imported assets. I also show that investment behavior is consistent with nonconvexities and irreversibilities. The results are robust to different specifications and instrumental variables approaches, and are not an artifact of tax evasion. The second paper studies the link between payout and unionization. Signaling models suggest that dividends are used to convey information about future earnings to investors. However, if unions also receive these signals, managers will be less inclined to send the signal, preventing unions from using this information when bargaining for higher salaries.; (cont.)

This thesis consists of two essays covering topics in the economics of financial institutions with an emphasis on certain types of potential agency problems. In particular, it investigates two radically different types of "arbs": arbitrators and arbitrageurs. The first essay studies securities arbitration to shed light on a relevant form of financial regulation that was previously unexplored empirically: the self-regulation of financial markets. The second essay investigates the informable financing channel in the context of arbitrageur fund-raising to develop a theory of the limits to arbitrage. Further details of each essay are included below:In Chapter 1, I investigate whether self-regulation in financial markets leads to greater industry bias and expertise in enforcement. Using hand-collected data on securities arbitration disputes from the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), I document that pro-industry arbitrators are selected more often to arbitration panels than pro-investor ones (selection on bias) and that experts are also selected more frequently to cases (selection on expertise). Moreover, both patterns vary substantially across cases. Selection on bias is strongest when large brokerage firms are sued and when cases are more important to firms while selection on expertise increases with case complexity. This suggests that arbitrators are assigned to cases in ways that lead to higher industry bias and expertise. To assess whether the NASD is responsible for these patterns...

According to the conventional wisdom,
when an economy enters a recession and nominal prices adjust
slowly, the monetary authority should devalue the domestic
currency to make the recession less severe. The reason is
that a devaluation of the currency lowers the relative price
of non-tradable goods, and this reduces the necessary
adjustment in output relative to the case in which the
exchange rate remains constant. This paper uses a simple
small open economy model with sticky prices to characterize
optimal fiscal and monetary policy in response to
productivity and terms of trade shocks. Contrary to the
conventional wisdom, in this framework optimal exchange rate
policy cannot be characterized just by the cyclical
properties of output. The source of the shock matters: while
recessions induced by a drop in the price of exportable
goods call for a devaluation of the currency, those induced
by a drop in productivity in the non-tradable sector require
a revaluation.

Absence of arbitrage is one of the fundamental tools to describe financial markets. The no-arbitrage price of any financial contract represents players’ valuation of the uncertain future income stream that will result from the contract. This reasoning is based on considering future income streams as exogenously defined variables. When spot markets do not behave under the assumption of perfect competition, future income streams might depend on players’ strategies. If this is the case, price differences between the forward and the spot markets do not imply the existence of arbitrage opportunities, as market players cannot take advantage of such differences. The paper will study the forward-spot interaction in the presence of spot market power. It will be shown that, when producers anticipate that forward sales reduce spot price, they can react in the forward market to compensate for the spot price decrease. Hence, players profits are, considering both forward and spot markets, equivalent to the ones obtained in the case where no forward trading is allowed. The paper also develops a multi-period model that considers the role of private information, aimed to represent that past spot prices are signals of the probability of future spot prices. In this context...

The notion of integration of different fmancial markets is often related to the absence of crossmarket arbitrage
opportunities. Under the appropriated asswnptions and in absence of cross-market arbitrage opportunities, a riskneutral
probability measure, shared by both markets, must exist. Some authors have considered this to provide
some integration measures when the markets do not share any pricing rule, but always in static (or one period)
asset pricing models.
The purpose or this paper is to extend the refereed notions to a more general context. This is accomplished by
introducing a methodology which may be applied in any intertemporal dynamic asset pricing model and without
special asswnptions on the assets prices stochastic process. Then, the integration measures introduced here are
stochastic processes testing different relative arbitrage profits and depending on the state of nature and on the date.
The measures are introduced in a single fmancial market. When this market is not a global market from different
ones, the measures simply test the degree of market efficiency.
Transaction costs can be discounted in our model. Therefore, one can measure efficiency and integration in
models with frictions.
The main results are also interesting form a mathematical pint of view...

Recently, incomplete-market techniques have been used to develop a model
applicable to credit default swaps (CDSs) with results obtained that are quite
different from those obtained using the market-standard model. This article
makes use of the new incomplete-market model to further study CDS hedging and
extends the model so that it is capable treating single-name CDS portfolios.
Also, a hedge called the vanilla hedge is described, and with it, analytic
results are obtained explaining the striking features of the plot of
no-arbitrage bounds versus CDS maturity for illiquid CDSs. The valuation
process that follows from the incomplete-market model is an integrated
modelling and risk management procedure, that first uses the model to find the
arbitrage-free range of fair prices, and then requires risk management
professionals for both the buyer and the seller to find, as a basis for
negotiation, prices that both respect the range of fair prices determined by
the model, and also benefit their firms. Finally, in a section on numerical
results, the striking behavior of the no-arbitrage bounds as a function of CDS
maturity is illustrated, and several examples describe the reduction in risk by
the hedging of single-name CDS portfolios.; Comment: 19 pages...

Non-equilibrium phenomena occur not only in physical world, but also in
finance. In this work, stochastic relaxational dynamics (together with path
integrals) is applied to option pricing theory. A recently proposed model (by
Ilinski et al.) considers fluctuations around this equilibrium state by
introducing a relaxational dynamics with random noise for intermediate
deviations called ``virtual'' arbitrage returns. In this work, the model is
incorporated within a martingale pricing method for derivatives on securities
(e.g. stocks) in incomplete markets using a mapping to option pricing theory
with stochastic interest rates. Using a famous result by Merton and with some
help from the path integral method, exact pricing formulas for European call
and put options under the influence of virtual arbitrage returns (or
intermediate deviations from economic equilibrium) are derived where only the
final integration over initial arbitrage returns needs to be performed
numerically. This result is complemented by a discussion of the hedging
strategy associated to a derivative, which replicates the final payoff but
turns out to be not self-financing in the real world, but self-financing {\it
when summed over the derivative's remaining life time}. Numerical examples are
given which underline the fact that an additional positive risk premium (with
respect to the Black-Scholes values) is found reflecting extra hedging costs
due to intermediate deviations from economic equilibrium.; Comment: 21 pages...

This paper considers a sequence of discrete-time random walk markets with a
safe and a single risky investment opportunity, and gives conditions for the
existence of arbitrages or free lunches with vanishing risk, of the form of
waiting to buy and selling the next period, with no shorting, and furthermore
for weak convergence of the random walk to a Gaussian continuous-time
stochastic process. The conditions are given in terms of the kernel
representation with respect to ordinary Brownian motion and the discretisation
chosen. Arbitrage and free lunch with vanishing risk examples are established
where the continuous-time analogue is arbitrage-free under small transaction
costs - including for the semimartingale modifications of fractional Brownian
motion suggested in the seminal Rogers (1997) article proving arbitrage in fBm
models.; Comment: To appear in the Brazilian Journal of Probability and Statistics,

This paper does not suppose a priori that the evolution of the price of a
financial asset is a semimartingale. Since possible strategies of investors are
self-financing, previous prices are forced to be finite quadratic variation
processes. The non-arbitrage property is not excluded if the class
$\mathcal{A}$ of admissible strategies is restricted. The classical notion of
martingale is replaced with the notion of $\mathcal{A}$-martingale. A calculus
related to $\mathcal{A}$-martingales with some examples is developed. Some
applications to no-arbitrage, viability, hedging and the maximization of the
utility of an insider are expanded. We finally revisit some no arbitrage
conditions of Bender-Sottinen-Valkeila type.

Constant price impact functions, much used in financial literature, are shown
to give rise to paradoxical outcomes since they do not allow for proper
predictability removal: for instance the exploitation of a single large trade
whose size and time of execution are known in advance to some insider leaves
the arbitrage opportunity unchanged, which allows arbitrage exploitation
multiple times. We argue that chain arbitrage exploitation should not exist,
which provides an a contrario consistency criterion. Remarkably, all the stocks
investigated in Paris Stock Exchange have dynamically consistent price impact
functions. Both the bid-ask spread and the feedback of sequential same-side
market orders onto both sides of the order book are essential to ensure
consistency at the smallest time scale.; Comment: 21 pages, 10 figures

## Financial markets with volatility uncertainty

We investigate financial markets under model risk caused by uncertain
volatilities. For this purpose we consider a financial market that features
volatility uncertainty. To have a mathematical consistent framework we use the
notion of G-expectation and its corresponding G-Brownian motion recently
introduced by Peng (2007). Our financial market consists of a riskless asset
and a risky stock with price process modeled by a geometric G-Brownian motion.
We adapt the notion of arbitrage to this more complex situation and consider
stock price dynamics which exclude arbitrage opportunities. Due to volatility
uncertainty the market is not complete any more. We establish the interval of
no-arbitrage prices for general European contingent claims and deduce explicit
results in a Markovian setting.

#Quantitative Finance - Mathematical Finance#Quantitative Finance - Computational Finance#Quantitative Finance - General Finance

We propose a new static parameterization of the implied volatility surface
which is constructed by using polynomials of sigmoid functions combined with
some other terms. This parameterization is flexible enough to fit market
implied volatilities which demonstrate smile or skew. An arbitrage-free
calibration algorithm is considered that constructs the implied volatility
surface as a grid in the strike-expiration space and guarantees a lack of
arbitrage at every node of this grid. We also demonstrate how to construct an
arbitrage-free interpolation and extrapolation in time, as well as build a
local volatility and implied pdf surfaces. Asymptotic behavior of this
parameterization is discussed, as well as results on stability of the
calibrated parameters are presented. Numerical examples show robustness of the
proposed approach in building all these surfaces as well as demonstrate a
better quality of the fit as compared with some known models.; Comment: 32 pages, 18 figures, 5 tables

We show that the frequent claim that the implied tree prices exotic options
consistently with the market is untrue if the local volatilities are subject to
change and the market is arbitrage-free. In the process, we analyse -- in the
most general context -- the impact of stochastic variables on the P&L of a
hedged portfolio, and we conclude that no model can a priori be expected to
price all exotics in line with the vanilla options market. Calibration of an
assumed underlying process from vanilla options alone must not be overly
restrictive, yet still unique, and relevant to all exotic options of interest.
For the implied tree we show that the calibration to real-world prices allows
us to only price vanilla options themselves correctly. This is usually
attributed to the incompleteness of the market under traditional stochastic
(local) volatility models. We show that some `weakly' stochastic volatility
models without quadratic variation of the volatilities avoid the incompleteness
problems, but they introduce arbitrage. More generally, we find that any
stochastic tradable either has quadratic variation -- and therefore a
$\Ga$-like P&L on instruments with non-linear exposure to that asset -- or it
introduces arbitrage opportunities.; Comment: LaTeX...

In the context of jump-diffusion market models we construct examples that
satisfy the weaker no-arbitrage condition of NA1 (NUPBR), but not NFLVR. We
show that in these examples the only candidate for the density process of an
equivalent local martingale measure is a supermartingale that is not a
martingale, not even a local martingale. This candidate is given by the
supermartingale deflator resulting from the inverse of the discounted growth
optimal portfolio. In particular, we con- sider an example with constraints on
the portfolio that go beyond the standard ones for admissibility.; Comment: A version has appeared in "Arbitrage, Credit and Informational

#Quantitative Finance - Pricing of Securities#91G20, 91B24, 91B26, 91B28, 91G80, 60H05, 60H10, 60H30

Model uncertainty is a type of inevitable financial risk. Mistakes on the
choice of pricing model may cause great financial losses. In this paper we
investigate financial markets with mean-volatility uncertainty. Models for
stock markets and option markets with uncertain prior distribution are
established by Peng's G-stochastic calculus. The process of stock price is
described by generalized geometric G-Brownian motion in which the mean
uncertainty may move together with or regardless of the volatility uncertainty.
On the hedging market, the upper price of an (exotic) option is derived
following the Black-Scholes-Barenblatt equation. It is interesting that the
corresponding Barenblatt equation does not depend on the risk preference of
investors and the mean-uncertainty of underlying stocks. Hence under some
appropriate sublinear expectation, neither the risk preference of investors nor
the mean-uncertainty of underlying stocks pose effects on our super and
subhedging strategies. Appropriate definitions of arbitrage for super and
sub-hedging strategies are presented such that the super and sub-hedging prices
are reasonable. Especially the condition of arbitrage for sub-hedging strategy
fills the gap of the theory of arbitrage under model uncertainty. Finally we
show that the term $K$ of finite-variance arising in the super-hedging strategy
is interpreted as the max Profit\&Loss of being short a delta-hedged option.
The ask-bid spread is in fact the accumulation of summation of the superhedging
$P\&L$ and the subhedging $P\&L $.; Comment: 29 pages

We revisit the problem of pricing and hedging plain vanilla single-currency
interest rate derivatives using multiple distinct yield curves for market
coherent estimation of discount factors and forward rates with different
underlying rate tenors.
Within such double-curve-single-currency framework, adopted by the market
after the credit-crunch crisis started in summer 2007, standard single-curve
no-arbitrage relations are no longer valid, and can be recovered by taking
properly into account the forward basis bootstrapped from market basis swaps.
Numerical results show that the resulting forward basis curves may display a
richer micro-term structure that may induce appreciable effects on the price of
interest rate instruments.
By recurring to the foreign-currency analogy we also derive generalised
no-arbitrage double-curve market-like formulas for basic plain vanilla interest
rate derivatives, FRAs, swaps, caps/floors and swaptions in particular. These
expressions include a quanto adjustment typical of cross-currency derivatives,
naturally originated by the change between the numeraires associated to the two
yield curves, that carries on a volatility and correlation dependence.
Numerical scenarios confirm that such correction can be non negligible...

The goal of this work is to study binary market models with transaction
costs, and to characterize their arbitrage opportunities. It has been already
shown that the absence of arbitrage is related to the existence of
\lambda-consistent price systems (\lambda-CPS), and, for this reason, we aim to
provide conditions under which such systems exist. More precisely, we give a
characterization for the smallest transaction cost \lambda_c (called "critical"
\lambda) starting from which one can construct a \lambda-consistent price
system. We also provide an expression for the set M(\lambda) of all probability
measures inducing \lambda-CPS. We show in particular that in the transition
phase "\lambda=\lambda_c" these sets are empty if and only if the frictionless
market admits arbitrage opportunities. As an application, we obtain an explicit
formula for \lambda_c depending only on the parameters of the model for
homogeneous and also for some semi-homogeneous binary markets.
