Forecasting Volatilities and Correlations with EGARCH Models

  title={Forecasting Volatilities and Correlations with EGARCH Models},
  author={Robert E. Cumby and Stephen Figlewski and Joel Hasbrouck},
Volatility varies randomly over time, making forecasting it d@cult. Formal models for systems with timevarying volatility have been developed in recent years, and widely applied in economics and finance. Models in the Autoregressive Conditional Heteroscedasticity (ARCH) family have been particularly popular. Prior studies of ARCH-type models of securities return variances have looked at a single asset and focused on in-sample explanation of volatility movements, rather than forecasting. This… Expand
Volatility modelling and forecasting in finance
Publisher Summary Volatility modeling and forecasting have attracted much attention in recent years, largely motivated by its importance in financial markets. Many asset-pricing models use volatilityExpand
Forecasting Oil Price Volatility
(ABSTRACT) This study compares different methods of forecasting price volatility in the crude oil futures market using daily data for the period November 1986 through March 1997. It compares theExpand
Modeling conditional volatility by incorporating non-regular trading hours into the APARCH model
ABSTRACT This study aims to evaluate how the after-market and pre-opening periods affect the estimation of conditional volatility one day ahead. Volatility features quite a lot in Finance studiesExpand
Modelling intraday stock price dynamics on the Malaysian stock exchange.
The introduction of the Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (ARCH) model in 1982 by Engle revolutionized the econometric treatment of volatility. The Generalized ARCH (GARCH) model and itsExpand
An investigation of the relative performance of GARCH models versus simple rules in forecasting volatility
Publisher Summary This chapter derives and analyses a formula for the mean square error (MSE) of a linear filter applied to forecast volatility when the proxy for “true” volatility is the squaredExpand
Time-Varying Combination of Volatility Forecasts : An Empirical Analysis for the Mexican Peso-U . S . Dollar Exchange Rate
Two classes of methods are typically used in …nancial volatility forecasting: time series and option implied. Currently there is still no consensus about which method is superior in terms ofExpand
Value-at-Risk in Emerging Equity Markets: Comparative Evidence for Symmetric, Asymmetric, and Long-Memory GARCH Models
This paper extends research concerned with the evaluation of alternative volatility forecasting methods under value at risk (VaR) modeling in the context of the Basle Committee adequacy criteria byExpand
Volatility Forecasting Performance: Evaluation of GARCH type volatility models on Nordic equity indices
This thesis examines the volatility forecasting performance of six commonly used forecasting models; the simple moving average, the exponentially weighted moving average, the ARCH model, the GARCHExpand
Forecasting Changes in Copper Futures Volatility with GARCH Models Using an Iterated Algorithm
There is a gap in the literature regarding the out-of-sample forecasting ability of GARCH-type models applied to derivatives. A practitioner-oriented method (iterated cumulative sum of squares) isExpand
Essays on volatility forecasting
In this chapter a straightforward comparison of volatility models is performed. This has been a popular theme within the finance literature however a generally accepted conclusion has still to beExpand


Alternative Models for Conditional Stock Volatility
This paper compares several statistical models for monthly stock return volatility. The focus is on U.S. data from 1834-19:5 because the post-1926 data have been analyzed in more detail by others.Expand
This paper introduces an ARCH model (exponential ARCH) that (1) allows correlation between returns and volatility innovations (an important feature of stock market volatility changes), (2) eliminatesExpand
Autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity with estimates of the variance of United Kingdom inflation
Traditional econometric models assume a constant one-period forecast variance. To generalize this implausible assumption, a new class of stochastic processes called autoregressive conditionalExpand
Generalized autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity
A natural generalization of the ARCH (Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedastic) process introduced in Engle (1982) to allow for past conditional variances in the current conditional varianceExpand
Consistency tests for heteroskedastic and risk models
This paper considers a class of consistency tests for the specification of heteroskedastic and risk models. The tests are related to other procedures such as the conditional moment tests of Newey andExpand
Generalized method of moments specification testing
Abstract This paper analyzes the asymptotic power properties of specification tests which are based on a finite set of moment conditions. It shows that any such test may fail against generalExpand
