Our interactive cloud-deployed Shiny application implements Markowitz (1952) model for equity and crypto markets. We can analyse not only equity lines and performance measures for our strategies and benchmark portfolios, but also perform interactive sensitivity analysis with respect to the length of historical window, the frequency of portfolio rebalancing and the degree of financial leverage. The app serves to illustrate the potential of portfolio risk diversification offered by crypto markets. Presentation of our application will be accompanied with a gentle introduction to Modern Portfolio Analysis – it’s not a rocket science, so everyone is invited!
