Given a 8×8 correlation matrix of stocks (you can choose whichever data you want from online), I want, using portfolio theory, to choose the optimal portfolio for an investor. Therefore, I need a report in which you will comment on the data matrix and you will conclude which would be the optimal portfolio for an investor. For this assessment, I would like to choose a simple real data set of stock prices from online( e.g. yahoo finance) and obtain the correlation matrix of them over a period of time. The correlation matrix should have dimension no more than 8×8 and of course can be based on historical prices. The main point of the assessment is using this correlation matrix to identify the optimal portfolio of stocks for an investor by using modern portfolio theory. Therefore, by observing and analysing the correlations between the stocks, you should propose the optimal portfolio for the investor.
