Up Percentage Ratio


Up Percentage Ratio measures the number of periods in which the asset's compound return was higher then benchmark (e.g. market index) return when benchmark was up, divided by the number of periods in which the benchmark was up. The higher is this ratio, the better is relative performance of an asset. \begin{equation} UPR = \frac{\sum_{i=1}^{T}\mathbf{1}_{r_i>r_{M,i},r_{M,i}>0}}{\sum_{i=1}^{T}\mathbf{1}_{r_{M,i}>0}} \end{equation} \begin{equation} \mathbf{1}_A = \begin{cases} 1 &\text{if } x \in A, \\0 &\text{if } x \notin A.\end{cases} \end{equation}

\(r_i\)
asset return for period i
\(r_{M,i}\)
market index (benchmark) return for period i
