Nevertheless, we would like to find at least the best approximate hedge. The deviation of the basis asset portfolio payoff from the focus asset is called the replication error: ε = Ax − b. A frequently used criterion is to minimize the sum of squared replication errors (SSREs) over all states: 2 SSRE = ε12 + ε22 + · · · + εm = (A1• x − b1 )2 + · · · + (Am• x − bm )2 . Fact. Assuming that the securities in A are linearly independent, the portfolio minimizing the squared replication error is given as xˆ = (A∗ A)−1 A∗ b.

The Structure of the Marketed Subspace 2. For A•2 15 ⎡ ⎤ 3 = ⎣2⎦ 1 there are now two possibilities: either (a) it is redundant, which means there is x1 such that A•2 = x1 A•1 , or (b) A•1 , A•2 are linearly independent. Let us examine (a), that is, try to find x1 so that A•2 = x1 A•1 holds ⎡ ⎤ ⎡ ⎤ ⎡ ⎤ 3 1 x1 ⎣2⎦ = x1 ⎣1⎦ = ⎣x1 ⎦ . 1 1 x1 This implies that x1 = 3 and x1 = 2 and x1 = 1, which is impossible. Since (a) is impossible (b) must hold, therefore we add the second security to the basket of linearly independent securities, already containing the first security.

The solution of Ax = b is 3 . 2 x= The vector x signifies the number of basis securities in the replicating portfolio. 2. 21) and that this can be rewritten as A•2 A•1 S 1 x1 + S2 x2 = b. 22) S1 S2 Define Aˆ as the matrix of returns, whereby each column of A is divided by the respective price (that is Aˆ •i = A•i /Si ): Aˆ = 110 100 110 100 60 50 40 50 . Then, naturally, the solution of Aˆ xˆ = b is x multiplied by the respective price (xˆi = xi Si ): 3 × 100 300 xˆ = = . 2 × 50 100 The vector xˆ expresses the amount of money invested in each security.
