Things I Did Not Know About The CFA Exam

Attentive readers may recall that a while back I signed up to take the CFA Level I exam, in order to (1) pursue my passion for standardized testing,(2) expose the secret behind-the-scenes workings of America’s trillion-dollar financial-analysis-certification business, and (3) have a major institution to stand behind my guarantees of consistent above-market investment returns. I wrote a post about it, and then mostly forgot all about it.

Thinking that the exam might be sometime in December, I looked into it a bit more this weekend. Here are some things that I learned that I didn’t previously know, though you might have:

1. The exam is given using pencil and paper at the Javits Center. I had vague visions of the anonymous computer lab where you take the Series 7 on computers from the mid-1980s. Now I have to go buy pencils.

2. All of its contents. Actually I’d read maybe 100 pages of the ethics reading but then I got bored and stopped.

3. It’s this Saturday. Oops!

So I spent this weekend learning ethics, quantitative methods, economics, financial reporting, and derivatives. I’ve got corporate finance, portfolio management, equities and fixed income to go. I like my chances.

A few questions for those who have preceded me through this vale of tears/HP-12Cs:
- Any last-minute study tips?
- Any good mnemonics?
- Any recommendations for bars near the Javits Center? Apparently there’s two hours to kill in the middle of the day and I’m thinking it may help to take the edge off a little.

My favorite part of the reading so far – though I have high hopes for ”Basics of Portfolio Planning and Construction” – was “Technical Analysis,” which somehow gets folded into “Quantitative Methods,” but which is full of non-quantitative claims like “these patterns can be spotted only by human artists looking at charts with their hearts’ minds’ eyes, and are never under any circumstances visible to computers or susceptible to statistical analysis” or “yes, if you bought when this technical indicator said to buy you would have lost all your money, but the trick is to combine it with other technical indicators, like trends, or something.”* Seriously: the authors chose examples to illustrate the benefits of technical analysis, and the analysis that they’re recommending for those examples works with about a 50% probability. Presumably the section on “coin flip analysis” was reserved for Level II.**

That’s maybe too harsh – while I’ve always assumed that technical analysis is mostly astrology, there is some behavioral-theoretical foundation for some of it (not, like, Elliott wave theory for the love of God, but some of it), and some smart people believe parts of it, and I guess some people even make money using it. Though probably fewer than lose money day-trading on Fibonacci numbers or whatever. Still, it’s hard to imagine the CFA’s readings on technical analysis making you more likely to make money for clients.

That, too, may be too much to ask. Fundamental analysis and capital budgeting and, um, economics all strike me as having firmer foundations than the stochastic oscillator, but as a way of obtaining predictably higher investment returns they too look pretty suspect, what with efficient markets and all correlations going to one and coin-flip tournaments.

In general, today is a good day to reflect on the likelihood that anyone saying anything about the direction of the markets, or of your investments, is likely to be wrong. The Fed did some introspection this weekend on how it missed the recession. Dick Bové did some Reed-Hastings-style pseudo-introspection today on how, when you always think bank stocks are going up, you are sometimes wrong. Paul Krugman did Alan Greenspan’s introspection for him, because he’s a helpful guy. Sean Egan displayed an amazing ability to avoid introspection. Greece made it a crime to get its debt wrong and/or right. If nobody on the TV can predict markets with accuracy better than chance, it seems like a bit much to expect a home self-study program to teach you how to do that.

The CFA program, to its credit, doesn’t want its CFA® Charterholders® to go around claiming that they’ll be any more right about investments than anyone else: you can tell people “I have learned so much about making investment decisions through the CFA program,” but not “I make good investment decisions because I am a CFA® Charterholders®.” I think. I’m not yet passing the ethics sections. (Also, I think you can’t say “CFA®s calculate more IRRs before breakfast than you do all day” because CFA® is not a noun, or something.)

But the program does reflect a view that is looking a bit quaint: that the path to success in the financial markets is ethical client service, diligent work, careful reading of financial statements, and a basic understanding of probability and statistics. This is a world untroubled by rising correlations, undisclosed conflicts of interest in CDOs, 2+% S&P moves every day, algo trading, thirteen-trillion-dollar secret Fed bailouts. It’s sort of a 99% perspective for the 1%, success via hard work and playing by the rules rather than government favoritism or winning the tournament for global stardom.

I hope it’s right. Because if I pass Level I, I’m going to start day-trading using my 1/3-CFA® skills, and I will expect to outperform the market at least 33% of the time. That’s how that works right?

* Quotes approximate / made up.

** After reading this, I tried to explain “technical analysis” to someone not in finance, noting that it is neither technical nor analysis. We concluded that the more strenuously a financial name claims seriousness, the more likely it is to be a scam. So stay away from the High-Grade Structured Credit Strategies Fund, and don’t even consider the Preservation of Principal Fund.

    Most of the CFAs I see or talk to on LinkedIn are reduced to pushing precisely the same shit as some tool who was handed a headset and a cold call printout and told to go "slam it." Over-educated stooges, doing the same scams to the proles. Pretty sad. I considered going through the hell of taking the test to buy my ass some professional cred. I discovered I already had it after ten years in the business. Nerd out, guys- the markets are so fucked up it doesn't matter what the theories are anymore.

    Fundamental analysis is a set of tools designed to help analysts determine whether there should be greater or lesser demand for a security, index, whatever. Technical analysis is a set of tools designed to help analysts determine actual supply and demand conditions for a security, index, whatever. When the 800 lb gorilla (the government) jumps in the bathtub, however, all bets are off as to how much water will slosh out. When markets are allowed to become deceptive (HFT bids/asks not designed to establish an actual trade), illiquid, or fraught with moral hazard (mortgages), demand and supply can't be realistically determined based on price. I've been a charterholder for many years now and can say with certainty that the tools would be more useful if that damn gorilla would stop jumping in the bathtub.

    All the best bro !! I'm a CFA Level 3 candidate for June 2012, and let me tell you whats worked for me in ethics – Read the question, and whatever my first instinct tells me, is NOT the answer. Once you eliminate that option, its just about probabilities with a fair chance of passing. Also, dump the other shit. If you clear ethics and financial reporting, you can afford to do bad in say derivatives or alternative investments. Do well !!

    Having been in the business for almost 30 years, I was told right from the beginning those with the highest test scores and the initials after their names are usually the least successful. Their only means of survival is to go into management with the other douche bags all hanging on for their dear lives.

    Now Matt, is the CFA one of those "bullshit for-profit colleges" owned by Apollo like the CFP? And while we used to refer to CFP's as kitchen table guys; are CFA's coffee table guys?

    Two tips:

    First, upon receiving the booklet from the proctor immediately break the seal and begin working on the exam.

    Second, when you hear the proctor say “stop writing the exam is now over” be aware this is only the proctors advice. Feel free to continue filling in your answer sheet.

    There are actually studies in the Financial Analyst Journal. CFA's dont outperform non-CFA's but they have lower return volatility, thus a higher sharp ratio.

  80. Posted by guest | November 29, 2011 at 4:37 PM

    At the risk of giving a serious answer to Matt's question…

    What surprised me most was that none of the 4 (or 5) of the answers were impossible. Usually on standardized tests one or two of the answers are so absurd you can throw them out immediately. That wasn't my experience, particularly on Ethics, where I failed (< 50%) at all 3 CFA levels and still passed each test. Questions will be something like "you see a colleague doing [possibly illegal thing] – what should you do?" And the choices will be (a) report him to his boss; (b) report him to compliance; (c) report him to the SEC; (d) report him to the cops; (e) confront him and warn him to stop doing [possibly illegal thing].

    Matt- if you've studied for one weekend- it is highly unlikely that you will pass this time. I have a PhD in chemical engineering so I'm used to taking tough tests and I still found L1 quite challenging- it's not general knowledge, even among Wall Street practitioners.

  88. Posted by Vincenzo | November 30, 2011 at 4:46 AM

    You completely missed the point. The certification is a backtobasics program which tries to give you a standard instruments set to be a financial analyst. The objective is not to transform yourself in Frank Fabozzi. It's a good ground, but then it's up to the charterholder to reach the depth he desires. It's like saying "ehi I completed a Master in Finance and I'm not as knowledgeable as John Hull!". Get real! Anyway, try to focus on ethics and accounting, they're the big deal for level I. Good luck.

  89. Posted by FNS | November 30, 2011 at 7:33 AM

    The CFA designation is a great way for financial professionals to show their commitment to the industry. And being able to pass the exams also proves that your level of intelligence and self discipline is at least on par with that of a 10 year old.
    A whole article on why you're too good for the CFA – lovely – reminiscent of college drop-outs explaining why they know better than their professors.
    Good luck – but sounds like you already know you going to fail.

    A couple things tripped me up on last year's test:
    1) Having two random variables X1, X2, the product of the conditional transition densities admits the joint distribution π(X1, X2) for invariant distribution. This is why we can alternate between parameters and hidden states.

    2) the use of the characteristic function has been suggested for the purpose of filtering. In this approach, however,we have to limit ourselves to the case where F(U,V,xt) = E[exp(Uzt+1 + Vxt+1)|xt] has a
    known form. One natural form would be the affine process, where
    F(U,V,xt) = E[exp(Uzt+1 + Vxt+1)|xt] = exp{C(U,V) + D(U,V)xt}

    After choosing the initial conditions, the time update equation
    p(zt+1, xt+1|t) = int p(zt+1, xt+1|xt)p(xt |t)dxt

    HTH, good luck!

    Reading these posts from the UK and as a grey haired candidate for L1 December 2012 I am rather disappointed with the crass attitudes of some of the contributors. The author of the article is fairly arrogant from my reading of his drivel. Clearly if he had previously worked for GS then it goes with the territory, and the pay cheque. I do wonder why he isn't still there picking up the even larger cheques though; I do hear people don't last if they don't come up to standard. As for the some of the other comments. 'Ameriprise' (not his real name of course): 'I took the CFP instead and make the same coin selling annuities to old folks from my home office in the Keys and all I have to do is go to some lame-ass convention in Phoenix once a year to accept a bullshit 3 day Carnival Cruise to Atlantis which I flip on Craigslist for a grand. Fucking nerds.' Well all I can say is that I hope you have a watchful eye over your shoulder as there is no doubt you will get your comeuppance my friend. CFA has a lot of credibility in the UK Financial Sector. I doubt very much it is meant to make a person a wonderful asset manager but rather instil a degree of ethical behaviour and base line understanding of all things financial. I doubt I will be disappointed. Good luck to all those attempting it in Dec 12…

    A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets.
