A credit derivative is a path dependent contingent claim on the aggregate loss in a portfolio of credit sensitive securities. We estimate the value of a credit derivative by Monte Carlo simulation of the affine point process that models the loss. We consider two algorithms that exploit the direct specification of the loss process in terms of an intensity.(More)

In this paper, we build an intraday model for volatility based on price change intensity. The quantity we model is thus named " volatensity ". The model is a combination of an Autoregressive Conditional Duration (ACD) structure resembling that of Engle and Russel (1998) and an additional term, inspired by the literature on Hawkes processes. The ACD(More)
