The rise of this regime has been supported (perhaps unwittingly) by governments and central banks. In this article, the authors review the behavior of markets in 2020 through the lens of this hypothesis.},

Quantifying this effect is of interest to estimate and manage the risk associated to portfolios of futures in a non‐stationary context. We apply and extend a previously reported method called the Principal Regression Analysis (PRA) to a universe of 84 futures contracts between 2009 and 2019. We show that the past up (resp. down) 10‐day trends of a novel predictor ‐‐ the eigen‐factor ‐‐ tend to reduce (resp. increase) instantaneous correlations. We then carry out a multifactor PRA on sectorial predictors corresponding to the four futures sectors (indexes, commodities, bonds and currencies), and show that the effect of past market movements on the future variations of the instantaneous correlations can be decomposed into two significant components. The first component is due to the market movements within the index sector, while the second component is due to the market movements within the bonds sector.},

We implemented this technique inside the systems of a tier‐one bank, and used it to approximate Front Office pricing functions in order to reduce the substantial computational burden associated with the capital calculation as specified by FRTB IMA. In all cases, the computational burden reductions obtained were of more than 90 percent, while keeping high degrees of accuracy. The latter obtained as a result of the mathematical properties enjoyed by Chebyshev tensors.},
