The Chief Executive Officer is concerned about the volatility in the company’s share price over the most recent month. Particularly, he is concerned that the share price has become more volatile that the share price of Boohoo Group plc, one of the company’s closest competitor. In response to the increasing trend in online shopping, the Chief Technology Officer has proposed the development of a new software that will improve operations at the company. But there are some concerns that should the new software fail to achieve its objectives, the volatility of the share price would increase. In order to assess the probability of success for the new software, the CTO plans to conduct an experiment. A trial of the new software will be repeated each day of the week, from Monday to Friday and the probability that the trial succeeds on a given day as been estimated at 0.7.YOUR TASKNote: Before completing this task, you should obtain daily time-series data of historical share prices for both ASOS plc and Boohoo Group plc for the most recent month.

Academic MisconductAny act of plagiarism and/ or collusion will be dealt with accordance with Kingston University’s regulation for Academic Misconduct – Taught Courses 2019/20 (AR6) that can be found using the link https://www.kingston.ac.uk/aboutkingstonuniversity/howtheuniversityworks/policiesandregulations/#ar The University defines academic misconduct (cheating) in assessment as any attempt by a student to gain an unfair advantage in assessments or to aid another to gain such an advantage. Examples of the types of academic misconduct covered by these procedures are provided below, but this should not be regarded as a definitive list. The University reserves the right to include other types of academic misconduct under this procedure (s.8) Plagiarism (including copying) The University defines plagiarism as the act of presenting the work of another person (or people) as one’s own without proper acknowledgement. This includes copying the work of another student or other students. The University expects students to take responsibility for the security of their work (i.e. with written work, to ensure that other students do not get access to electronic or hard copy of the work). Failure to keep work secure may allow others to cheat, and could result in an allegation of academic misconduct for students whose work have been copied, particularly if the origin of the work is in doubt Self-Plagiarism The University defines self-plagiarism as the act of presenting part or all of a student’s work that has been previously submitted to meet the requirements of a different assessment, except where the nature of the assessment makes this permissible. Collusion The University defines collusion as the act, by two or more students, of presenting a piece of work jointly without acknowledging the collaboration. This could include a student who permits or assists another to present work that has been copied or paraphrased from the student’s own work. Purchasing or Commissioning The University defines the act of purchasing or commissioning as either attempting to purchase or purchasing work for an assessment including, for example from the internet, or attempting to commission, or commissioning someone else to complete an assessment.
