By appealing to the Fisher relationship, the implied inflation term structure is calculated as the difference of instantaneous nominal forward rates and instantaneous real forward real rates (section 2 makes clear exactly what these terms mean).

Second, the model is consistent with multifactor volatility models or CGARCH e¤ects. Both endowment risk and sentiment risk are associated with instantaneous shocks associated with the idiosyncratic risk embedded in the Brownian motions present in the investors endowments. In contrast, solvency risk is associated with the binding of solvency constraints, and therefore it occurs at a lower frequency.

There is growing recognition among academics and practitioners that the risk and return characteristics of human capital—such as wage and salary profiles— should be taken into account when building portfolios for individual investors.

The long duration of Trichet bonds removes the immediate crisis caused by short term expiration of significant amounts of debt which is looming over Greece, Ireland, Portugal, Spain and possibly other EU countries. Trichet bonds allow distressed countries to defer maturities over a longer period and to effect economic reforms before having to return to capital markets on the basis of their own creditworthiness. Trichet Bonds will enable sovereigns to see bond spreads be reduced considerably from their record levels at present.

Given the wellestimated usual event model and an un seen test sequence, we ﬁrst slice the test sequence into ﬁxed length segments with overlapping. This is done by mov ing a sliding window. The choice of the sliding window size corresponds to the minimum duration constraint in the HMM framework. Given the usual event model, the likeli hood of each segment is then calculated. The segment with the lowest likelihood value is identiﬁed as an outlier (Figure 2, step 1). The outlier is expected to represent one speciﬁc unusual event and could be used to train an unusual event model.

The main reason for this lack of statistical significance is the large standard deviation of daily returns, about 1 percent, which swamps in magnitude the difference in returns. We also investigate whether the identified difference in returns between new moon and full moon windows is persistent. As a measure of persistence, we calculate the percentage of years in which mean new moon daily returns are higher than mean full moon returns. For the DJIA, this number is 56.3 percent, which is moderately above the 50 percent that would be expected by chance.
