The field of financial econometrics has exploded over the last decade This book represents an integration of theory, methods, and examples using the S-PLUS statistical modeling language and the S+FinMetrics module to facilitate the practice of financial econometrics. This is the first book to show the power of S-PLUS for the analysis of time series data. It is written for researchers and practitioners in the finance industry, academic researchers in economics and finance, and advanced MBA and graduate students in economics and finance. Readers are assumed to have a basic knowledge of S-PLUS and a solid grounding in basic statistics and time series concepts. This Second Edition is updated to cover S+FinMetrics 2.0 and includes new chapters on copulas, nonlinear regime switching models, continuous-time financial models, generalized method of moments, semi-nonparametric conditional density models, and the efficient method of moments.

"...It is a pleasure to strongly recommend this text, and to include statisticians such as myself among the pleased audience." --Thomas L. Burr for Techommetrics, Vol. 49, No. 1, February 2007
"This book has a double function. First, it serves as a guide to models and estimation methods for extracting information from financial time series, and second, as a user's guide for Insightful's S+FinMetrics package. That makes it interesting for mainly two communities of readers: the academic community in econometrics, statistics and finance, and the pracitioners in the finance industry. ...In summary this book is excellent to learn key methods and corresponding S+FinMetrics functions to analyze financial time series." --Valerie Chavez-Dumoulin for Journal of Statistical Software, Vol. 17, February 2007
"This book is a guide on how to analyze and model financial time series data using S-PLUS and S-FinMetrics. … The book is aimed for a wide audience of workers in the areas of empirical finance … and many researchers in economics and finance, marketing, and even management.
