Covariance

Covariance

A statistical measure of the degree to which random variables move together. A positive covariance implies that one variable is above (below) its mean value when the other variable is above (below) its mean value.


Covariance

Covariance

A measure of the extent to which two economic or statistical variables move up and down together. For two variables x and y with values xi, yi, i=1,…,n, the covariance is cov(x,y) = Si=1…n(xi-m(x))(yi-m(y)), where m(·) is the mean of the values in its argument.


Serial covariance

Serial covariance

The covariance between a variable and the lagged value of the variable; the same as autocorrelation.


Variance rule

Variance rule

Specifies the permitted minimum or maximum quantity of securities that can be delivered to satisfy a TBA trade. For Ginnie Mae, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac pass-through securities, the accepted variance is plus or minus 2.499999 % per million of the par value of the TBA quantity.


Comvariance

Comvariance

An analogue to covariance for three variables. For three variables x, y, and z with values xi, yi, zi, i=1,…,n, the comvariance is com(x,y,z) = Si=1…n(xi-m(x))(yi-m(y))(zi-m(z)), where m(·) is the mean of the values in its argument. Due to Deardorff (1982).
