Abstract Recently, cryptocurrencies have attracted a growing interest from investors, practitioners and researchers. Nevertheless, few studies have focused on the predictability of them. In this paper we propose a new and comprehensive study about cryptocurrency market, evaluating the forecasting performance for three of the most important cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ethereum and Litecoin) in terms of market capitalization. At this aim, we consider non-Gaussian GARCH volatility models, which… Expand
Cryptocurrency portfolio optimization with multivariate normal tempered stable processes and Foster-Hart risk
The time series model is a generalized autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity (GARCH) model with multivariate normal tempered stable (MNTS) distributed residuals used to capture the non-Gaussian cryptocurrency return dynamics. Expand
Forecasting Value-at-Risk and Expected Shortfall of Cryptocurrencies using Combinations based on Jump-Robust and Regime-Switching Models
Several procedures to estimate daily risk measures in cryptocurrency markets have been recently proposed in the literature. Among them, procedures taking into account the presence of extremeExpand
Understanding cryptocurrency volatility: The role of oil market shocks
Abstract This study employs the generalized autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity-mixed data sample framework to examine the role of oil market shocks in determining the long-term volatilityExpand
Exchange Market Liquidity Prediction with the K-Nearest Neighbor Approach: Crypto vs. Fiat Currencies
In this paper, we compare the predictions on the market liquidity in crypto and fiat currencies between two traditional time series methods, the autoregressive moving average (ARMA) and theExpand
Demythifying the belief in cryptocurrencies decentralized aspects. A study of cryptocurrencies time cross-correlations with common currencies, commodities and financial indices
Abstract The main question of this article is about whether cryptocurrencies, within their decentralization aspects, are a real commodity or/and a virtual currency. To resolve such a dilemma, weExpand
Cryptocurrencies in Modern Finance: A Literature Review
The focus on cryptocurrencies in the finance and banking sectors is gaining momentum. In this paper, we investigate the role of cryptocurrencies in modern finance. We apply a narrative literatureExpand
Volatility GARCH models with the ordered weighted average (OWA) operators
This paper proposes the use of ordered weighted average (OWA) operators in combination with ordinary least squares (OLS) to create an estimator that can treat high degrees of uncertainty. Expand
Distribution-Based Entropy Weighting Clustering of Skewed and Heavy Tailed Time Series
This paper develops a clustering procedure of model-based type, assuming that the time series are generated by the same underlying probability distribution but with different parameters, and proposes to optimally combine the estimated parameters to form the clusters with an entropy weighing k-means approach.

Challenging practical features of Bitcoin by the main altcoins
We study the fundamental differences that separate: Litecoin; Bitcoin Gold; Bitcoin Cash; Ethereum; and Zcash from Bitcoin, and draw some analysis to how these features are appreciated by the market,Expand
Model-based fuzzy time series clustering of conditional higher moments
A new time series clustering procedure allowing for heteroskedasticity, non-normality and model's non-linearity is developed via the Autocorrelation-based fuzzy C -means (A-FCM) algorithm. Expand


Modelling and predicting the Bitcoin volatility using GARCH models
This paper is the first to forecast the volatility of the Bitcoin/USD exchange rate and the EGARCH (1,1) model outperforms the GARCH, GARCH and EWMA models in both in sample and out of sampled contexts with increased accuracy in the out of sample period. Expand
Volatility estimation for Bitcoin: Replication and robustness
Abstract Katsiampa [Volatility estimation for Bitcoin: A comparison of GARCH models. Economics Letters, 158, 3–6, 2017] compares several GARCH-type models to estimate volatility for Bitcoin returns.Expand
GARCH Process with GED Distribution
This paper considers two models that were proposed as a description of real time series with heteroscedastic behavior, namely ARCH and GARCH systems and extends the classical econometric models to the case with non-Gaussian distribution. Expand
Some Stylized Facts of the Bitcoin Market
In recent years a new type of tradable assets appeared, generically known as cryptocurrencies. Among them, the most widespread is Bitcoin. Given its novelty, this paper investigates some statisticalExpand
GARCH Model With Fat-Tailed Distributions and Bitcoin Exchange Rate Returns
In the era of diminishing power from US dollar and increasing competition among world currencies, Bitcoin, as a completely new concept as a medium of exchange, has received increasing attentions overExpand

From the simulation results, it is determined that the forecasting of volatility performance is significantly improved if the leverage effect of clustering is considered along with the use of expert knowledge enabled by the GARCH model. Expand
Garch forecasting performance under different distribution assumptions
This paper investigates the forecasting performance of the Garch (1, 1) model when estimated with NINE different error distributions on Standard and Poor's 500 Index Future returns. By utilizing theExpand
Financial and risk modelling with semicontinuous covariances
The novel abc class of semicontinuous covariance functions is introduced, which integrates both continuous and discontinuous covariances and provides a proper environment for unifying several contradictions on IS/ML model in the economic literature. Expand
