Multivariate Stochastic Volatility Model With Realized Volatilities and Pairwise Realized Correlations

Abstract Although stochastic volatility and GARCH (generalized autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity) models have successfully described the volatility dynamics of univariate asset returns,

A Threshold Stochastic Volatility Model with Realized Volatility

Rapid development in the computer technology has made the financial transaction data visible at an ultimate limit level. The realized volatility, as a proxy for the "true" volatility, can be

Cholesky Realized Stochastic Volatility Model

Estimating stochastic volatility models using realized measures

Abstract This paper extends the basic stochastic volatility (SV) model in order to incorporate the realized variance (RV) as an additional measure for the latent daily volatility. The particular

Pricing Nikkei 225 Options Using Realized Volatility

This article analyzes whether daily realized volatility, which is the sum of squared intraday returns over a day, is useful for option pricing. Different realized volatilities are calculated with or


Methodology is presented of how to apply Stochastic-Volatility Jump-Diffusion (SVJD) models with self-exciting jumps to the intraday asset price returns (specifically to the EUR/USD 4-hour returns).

The Analysis of Stochastic Volatility in the Presence of Daily Realised Measures

We develop a systematic framework for the joint modeling of returns and multiple daily realized measures. We assume a linear state space representation for the log realized measures, which are noisy

Efficient Estimation of Stochastic Volatility Using Noisy Observations: A Multi-Scale Approach

With the availability of high frequency financial data, nonparametric estimation of volatility of an asset return process becomes feasible. A major problem is how to estimate the volatility

Microstructure noise, realized volatility, and optimal sampling

Recorded prices are known to diverge from their "efficient" values due to the presence of market microstructure contaminations. The microstructure noise creates a dichotomy in the model-free

Bayesian Analysis of Stochastic Volatility Models

Time varying volatility is a characteristic of many financial series. An alternative to the popular ARCH framework is a Stochastic Volatility model which is harder to estimate than the ARCH family.

Stochastic Volatility

We give an overview of a broad class of models designed to capture stochastic volatility in financial markets, with illustrations of the scope of application of these models to practical finance

Microstructure Noise, Realized Variance, and Optimal Sampling

A recent and extensive literature has pioneered the summing of squared observed intra-daily returns, "realized variance", to estimate the daily integrated variance of financial asset prices, a

Measuring and Forecasting S&P 500 Index-Futures Volatility Using High-Frequency Data

In the 24-hr foreign exchange market, Andersen and Bollerslev measure and forecast volatility using intraday returns rather than daily returns. Trading in equity markets only occurs during part of

Realized Volatility: A Review

This article reviews the exciting and rapidly expanding literature on realized volatility. After presenting a general univariate framework for estimating realized volatilities, a simple discrete time
