Comparative performance of Islamic Market Index based on Optimized Renko Method

Abstract:
Renko is a Japanese-style of charting, popular to many users of technical analysis. In this paper, the method is used to study the performance of the Dow Jones Industrial Average comparing with the Islamic Market Index. Results show that the method is equally effective in both types of index and can produce an above-average return on a longer time frame for the Islamic index too.

Issues in endogenizing relevant systematic risk in Islamic Sustainable Finance

Abstract:
Environment and climate change are generally considered a systemic risk, not as part of the systematic risk. The view of the Islamic finance industry and institutions is no different. However, with greater awareness about the existential threat of climate crisis, there is the call for treating it as part of the systematic risk. The Islamic finance industry, as a purpose-driven than merely profit-driven, has to be cognizant too about the evolving risk. Once it is recognized that industries and institutions also contribute to systematic risk and they can and must find ways to reduce that risk, it is only prudent and appropriate that there must be concerted efforts in that direction. This paper provides a brief survey of the emerging ideas and makes the case that, wherever possible in both conventional and Islamic context, endogenizing systematic risk needs to be a priority and toward that end, the paper identifies some pertinent issues.
