by John Hull

I guess any simple idea that is really good will catch on quickly.
- John Hull

It sounds simplistic to say that now,
but back then, this was the sort of thing people were
only just beginning to realize.
- John Hull

incorporate mean reversion into the HoLee model.
- John Hull

I didn't become interested in derivatives until 1982,
1983.
- John Hull

modeling a single number,

We started giving presentations at practitioner conferences in 1986,

- John Hull

When interest rates are high you want the average direction
in which interest rates are moving to be downward;
when interest rates are low you want the average direction to be upward.
- John Hull

Our research led on to other things,
such as the fact that exchange rates are not lognormally distributed.
- John Hull

In the interest rate area, traders have for a long
time used a version of what is known as Black's model

- John Hull

The HoLee model was the first term structure model.
I remember reading their paper soon after it was published
and as it was fairly different from many of the other papers that I had read,
I had to read it quite a few times.
I realized that it was a really important paper.
- John Hull

Briefly speaking, our conclusion is that stochastic
volatility does not make a huge difference as far as
the pricing is concerned if you get the average volatility right.
It makes a big difference as far as hedging is concerned.
- John Hull

The real challenge was to model all the interest rates simultaneously,
so you could value something that depended not only
on the three-month interest rate,
but on other interest rates as well.
- John Hull

Our tree is actually a tree of the short-term interest rate.
The average direction in which the short-term interest
rate moves depends on the level of the rate.
When the rate is very high, that direction is downward;
when the rate is very low,
it is upward.
- John Hull

If each of your time steps is one week long,
you are not modeling the stock price terribly well
over a one-week time period,
because you are saying that there are only two possible outcomes.
- John Hull

Alan White and I spent the next two or three years
working together on this.
We developed what is known a stochastic volatility model.
This is a model where the volatility as well as the
underlying asset price moves around in an unpredictable way.
- John Hull

Yes, our tree has an interesting shape.
The center branches reflect the shape of the zero curve.
When extreme parts of the tree are reached the branching
pattern changes to accommodate the mean reversion.
- John Hull

One important measurement issue concerns the fat tails
problem that I mentioned earlier.
VAR is concerned with extreme outcomes.
If the tails of the probability distributions we are using are too thin,
our VAR measures are likely to be too low.
- John Hull

I'm becoming more and more myself with time.
I guess that's what grace is.
The refinement of your soul through time.
- Jewel

Walk on road, hmmm?
Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe.

Here, karate, same thing.
Either you karate do "yes" or karate do "no."

- Miyagi: character in the movie Karate Kid

it seemed like a good idea at the time.

with which one must look and listen,
record in astonishment
and wonder that which one would not have been able to guess.

Everything that happens in the world, or doesn't happen,
is NOT my responsibility.
There are more than enough things that are my responsibility.
I am responsible for my thoughts, my beliefs, and my actions -
and that is enough.
It does not serve me to mind anyone else's business.
I can only make myself unhappy by trying to second guess
what anyone else thinks or does.

From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I do have places in London and Milan,
and a house in Spain.
I guess I would say home is where my mother is,
and she lives in Spain.

my daughter was the greatest thing since sliced bread.
- Candice Bergen

An economist's guess is liable to be as good as anybody else's.
- Will Rogers

leaving those who look through to guess about what
is seen during the moment.

chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan.

is the nature of each of the songs and of the words.
