In my previous post I demonstrated how a risk parity portfolio could be calculated numerically using a Newton method. We can do this with PCTR constrained optimization by setting PCTR inequality constraints on portfolio assets, or groups of assets.

This quote was taken from an article last week in the FT.

Here I will demonstrate how a risk parity portfolio can be calculated quite easily using R.

By definition, a risk parity portfolio is one for which all percentage contributions to risk (PCTR) are equal. By the same definition, it means that the total contributions to risk (TCTR) are all equal also.

The authors explore if there are features in accounting data and in historical price information that can help predict the stock price changes of companies.

The original source data was from the CRSP(Center for Research in Security Prices)/Compustat merged database (CCM); 7 technical features are calculated from CRSP and 44 fundamental features are obtained from Compustat.

So to begin, here is a strategy I created recently, combining sentiment data with technical indicators, and using a machine learning classification technique named Support Vector Machines (SVM). This data too can be obtained through Quandl.
