COVER PAGE (1 page)
EE590 Project Proposal
Title of Project:
(min 1 page). What is the problem you are trying to solve and why is it important? Be very specific
(min 1 page). What approach are you going to use to solve the problem? What software tools are you planning to use? What assets and how many are you analyzing if any?
(min 1 page). How are you going to test your approach or model to see how well it does? If you use the same data that you used to develop your approach and train your model these data cannot be used to test the validity of your approach. You need to use new data not used for training to test your approach. In this section specify what data you will use for developing or training your models and what data for testing i.e. validation
Example of validation: Let us assume that you used historical data from 1/1/2010 to 1/1/2017 to develop a model that predicts future asset returns. Then you use data from 1/1/2017 to May 2018 say to verify whether the model predicted returns were actually achieved as predicted by the model by comparing them with the actual returns during the period 1/1/2017 to May 2018. This process is called validation.
(1/2 to 1 page) Write what you will deliver at the end of the project to me. For example: Final report, Software code ready to run and whatever you believe is a deliverable needs to be stated. Even though obvious you need to state it. Who can use your results and how?
Include all references and sources of information you have mentioned in your proposal. DO NOT LIST REFERENCES NOT MENTIONED IN PROPOSAL OTHERWISE YOUR PROPOSAL WILL BE RETURNED
The proposal should be written in correct English.
DIRECTIONS FOR TOPIC
You are encouraged to come up with your own topic. If you cannot below are some ideas:
Start with a $1 million hypothetical portfolio. Choose any of the following:
Use part of real data from past to set up your portfolio. Use remainder of past data to check whether what you expected to get is confirmed. For example if you set up a portfolio with an expected return of 15% did you get it?
FINAL REPORT TEMPLATE (at least 8 pages long excluding references , cover page and appendix)
Preferred that is written in word
IMPORTANT: Make sure you write correct English and use the word speller to correct all spelling errors. Reports with spelling or grammar mistakes will be returned.
DO NOT REPEAT INSTRUCTIONS (indicated in blue) IN YOUR REPORT
Use fond size 11 , space 1.15, Times New Romans, Border space Normal 1inch from sides and top and bottom. The use of extra space to fill pages or use of large side spaces is not allowed. If you copy graphs, figures or tables from any source you need to indicate so and provide a reference. Cut and paste of text from papers or reports and presenting as yours is plagiarism and offenders will be penalized with no credit. All reports will be checked for overlaps using a plagiarism software tool.
No software code should be including in the report. You can send any code in a separate file or add in an appendix.
Do not copy equations from books or papers and write them down to fill space. You write down only the equations you use and show how you used them in generating your results.
A final report is about what you did so sentences copied from the proposal such as ‘I will do this’, or ‘I plan to do that’ make no sense as the report should be about what you already did not what you plan to do.
