1. Suppose two random variables x and y have covariance equal to -2; x has mean 7; y
has mean 3;
(a) What is the expected value of x + y?
(b) What is the expected value of x y?
(c) If instead x and y
1) Why focus on returns not prices?
Returns are mean-reverting (stationary) while prices are not - they are I(1). Statistical
modelling of returns is therefore much more simple. Related to this, most

Advantages:
- gain precision from having more data. No harm if there is no event impact on returns
