Recently neural networks (ANNs) have seen success in volatility prediction, but the literature is divided on where an ANN should be used rather than the common GARCH model. The purpose of this study is to compare the volatility prediction performance of ANN and GARCH models when applied to stocks with low, medium, and high volatility profiles. This approach intends to identify which model should be used for each case. The volatility profiles comprise of five sectors that cover all stocks in the…

GARCH based artificial neural networks in forecasting conditional variance of stock returns
Portfolio managers, option traders and market makers are all interested in volatility forecasting in order to get higher profits or less risky positions. Based on the fact that volatility is time
Volatility forecast using hybrid Neural Network models
The results demonstrate that the ANN models can improve the forecasting performance of the GARCH models when studied in the three Latin-American markets and it is shown that the results are robust and consistent for different ANN specifications and different volatility measures.
Using Neural Networks to Forecast Volatility for an Asset Allocation Strategy Based on the Target Volatility
A stability-oriented approach is applied to compare data for the current period to a past set of data for a period of low volatility, providing a much more abundant source of data to comparison.
Volatility of main metals forecasted by a hybrid ANN-GARCH model with regressors
Volatility forecasts associated with the price of gold, silver, and copper are analyzed, finding that the best models to forecast the price return volatility of these main metals are the ANN-GARCH model with regressors.
