Usage

Empyrial Engine

from empyrial import empyrial, Engine

portfolio = Engine(
    start_date = "2018-06-09", 
    portfolio = ["BABA", "PDD", "KO", "AMD","^IXIC"], 
    weights = [0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2],  # equal weighting is set by default
    benchmark = ["SPY"]  # SPY is set by default
)

empyrial(portfolio)

Calendar Rebalancing

A portfolio can be rebalanced for either a specific time period or for specific dates using the rebalance option.

Rebalance for Time Period

Time periods available for rebalancing are 2y, 1y, 6mo, quarterly, monthly

from empyrial import empyrial, Engine

portfolio = Engine(
    start_date = "2018-06-09", 
    portfolio = ["BABA", "PDD", "KO", "AMD","^IXIC"], 
    weights = [0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2],  # equal weighting is set by default
    benchmark = ["SPY"],  # SPY is set by default
    rebalance = "1y"
)

empyrial(portfolio)

Rebalance for Custom Dates

You can rebalance a portfolio by specifying a list of custom dates.
When using custom dates, the first date of the list must correspond with the start_date and the last element should correspond to the end_date which is today's date by default.

from empyrial import empyrial, Engine

portfolio = Engine(
    start_date = "2018-06-09", 
    portfolio = ["BABA", "PDD", "KO", "AMD","^IXIC"], 
    weights = [0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2, 0.2],  # equal weighting is set by default
    benchmark = ["SPY"],  # SPY is set by default
    rebalance = ["2018-06-09", "2019-01-01", "2020-01-01", "2021-01-01"]
)

empyrial(portfolio)

Optimizer

The default optimizer is equal weighting. You can specify custom weights, if desired.

from empyrial import empyrial, Engine

portfolio = Engine(
    start_date = "2018-01-01",
    portfolio = ["BABA", "PDD", "KO", "AMD","^IXIC"], 
    weights = [0.1, 0.3, 0.15, 0.25, 0.2],   # custom weights
    rebalance = "1y"  # rebalance every year
)

empyrial(portfolio)

You can also use the built-in optimizers. There are 4 optimizers available:

  • "EF": Global Efficient Frontier Example
  • "MEANVAR": Mean-Variance Example
  • "HRP": Hierarchical Risk Parity Example
  • "MINVAR": Minimum-Variance Example
from empyrial import empyrial, Engine

portfolio = Engine(
    start_date = "2018-01-01",
    portfolio = ["BABA", "PDD", "KO", "AMD","^IXIC"],
    optimizer = "EF",
    rebalance = "1y"  # rebalance every year
)

portfolio.weights

Output:

[0.0, 0.0, 0.0348, 0.9652, 0.0]

We can see that the allocation has been optimized.

Risk Manager

3 Risk Managers are available:

  • Max Drawdown: {"Max Drawdown" : -0.3} Example
  • Take Profit: {"Take Profit" : 0.4} Example
  • Stop Loss: {"Stop Loss" : -0.2} Example
from empyrial import empyrial, Engine

portfolio = Engine(
    start_date = "2018-01-01",
    portfolio= ["BABA", "PDD", "KO", "AMD","^IXIC"], 
    optimizer = "EF",
    rebalance = "1y",  # rebalance every year
    risk_manager = {"Max Drawdown" : -0.2}  # Stop the investment when the drawdown becomes superior to -20%
)

empyrial(portfolio)

Download the Tearsheet

You can use the get_report() function of Empyrial to generate a tearsheet, and then download this as a PDF document.

from empyrial import get_report, Engine

portfolio = Engine(
      start_date = "2018-01-01",
      portfolio = ["BABA", "PDD", "KO", "AMD","^IXIC"],
      optimizer = "EF",
      rebalance = "1y", #rebalance every year
      risk_manager = {"Stop Loss" : -0.2}
)

get_report(portfolio)

Output:
