In this paper we study new nonlinear GARCH models mainly designed for time series with highly persistent volatility. [...] Key Method U sing the theory of Markov chains we provide sufficient conditions for the stationarity and existence of moments of the considered smooth transition GARCH models and even some more general nonlinear GARCH models. Empirical applications to two exchange rate return series show that the new models can be superior to conventional GARCH models especially in longer term forecasting.Expand
Time-Varying Volatility Persistence in a GARCH-MIDAS Framework
This paper presents a new volatility model with time-varying volatility persistence (TVP) that is governed by the dynamics of an explanatory variable. We extend the GJR-GARCH model by introducing aExpand
MODELING MULTIPLE REGIMES IN FINANCIAL VOLATILITY WITH A FLEXIBLE COEFFICIENT GARCH(1,1) MODEL
In this paper a flexible multiple regime GARCH(1,1)-type model is developed to describe the sign and size asymmetries and intermittent dynamics in financial volatility. The results of the paper areExpand
Multivariate Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity with Smooth Transitions in Conditional Correlations
In this paper we propose a new multivariate GARCH model with time-varying conditional correlation structure. The approach adopted here is based on the decomposition of the covariances intoExpand
Contemporaneous-Threshold Smooth Transition GARCH Models
This paper proposes a contemporaneous-threshold smooth transition GARCH (or C-STGARCH) model for dynamic conditional heteroskedasticity. The C-STGARCH model is a generalization to second conditionalExpand
Modeling time-varying parameters using artificial neural networks: a GARCH illustration
We propose a new volatility process in which parameters vary over time according to an artificial neural network (ANN). We prove the process’s stationarity as well as the global identification ofExpand
Consistency of the Model Order Change-Point Estimator for GARCH Models
GARCH models have been commonly used to capture volatility dynamics in financial time series. A key assumption utilized is that the series is stationary as this allows for model identifiability. ThisExpand
Volatility Models: From GARCH to Multi-Horizon Cascades
We overview different methods of modeling volatility of stock prices and exchange rates, focusing on their ability to reproduce the empirical properties in the corresponding time series. TheExpand
Stability of Nonlinear Ar-Garch Models
This paper studies the stability of nonlinear autoregressive models with conditionally heteroskedastic errors. We consider a nonlinear autoregression of order p (AR(p)) with the conditional varianceExpand

Stock market volatility is known to be very persistent, periods of high volatility as well as low volatility tend to last for several months but there is still room left for alternative explanations.Expand

Volatility impulse response functions for multivariate GARCH models
In the empirical analysis of financial time series, multivariate GARCH models have been used in various forms. As it is typical for nonlinear models there is yet no unique framework available toExpand
Improving GARCH volatility forecasts with regime-switching GARCH
Abstract. Many researchers use GARCH models to generate volatility forecasts. Using data on three major U.S. dollar exchange rates we show that such forecasts are too high in volatile periods. WeExpand
Persistence and Kurtosis in GARCH and Stochastic Volatility Models
This article shows that the relationship between kurtosis, persistence of shocks to volatility, and first-order autocorrelation of squares is different in GARCH and ARSV models. This difference canExpand
Smooth-Transition GARCH Models
The asymmetric response of conditional variances to positive versus negative news has been traditionally modeled with threshold specifications that allow only two possible regimes: low or highExpand
Forecasting volatility with switching persistence GARCH models
In this paper we examine the forecasting performance of five nonlinear GARCH(1,1) models. Four of these have recently been proposed in literature, while the fifth model is a new one. All five modelsExpand
A new non-linear GARCH model
This dissertation contains four papers in the field of financial econometrics. In the first paper, A Smooth Transition ARCH Model for Asset Returns, a new class of ARCH models is introduced. TheExpand
Autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity and changes in regime
ARCH models often impute a lot of persistence to stock volatility and yet give relatively poor forecasts. One explanation is that extremely large shocks, such as the October 1987 crash, arise fromExpand
