Unformatted text preview: 6) Compute the Range, IQR, standard deviation and coefficient of variation for each return series; 7) Which measures are suitable for comparing the variation of return series across different markets? Which market has the largest degree of variation? 8) Compute the correlation coefficient and the rank correlation coefficient between the daily return of Thailand index and the return of any other indices. 9) Compute the skewness and kurtosis for each of the return series. Note: To compute the rank correlation coefficient between two series, you need to obtain the ranks of all observations in one series, as well as the ranks of all observations in the other. The rank correlation coefficient between the two series is actually the Pearson correlation coefficient between the two rank series. Note: If you cannot finish the questions in the tutorial, it is very important that you finish them by yourselves....
