Alternative Formulations of the Leverage Effect in a Stochastic Volatility Model with Asymmetric Heavy-Tailed Errors
This paper investigates three formulations of the leverage effect in a stochastic volatility model with a skewed and heavy-tailed observation distribution. The first formulation is the conventional
Efficient Bayesian inference for multivariate factor stochastic volatility models with leverage
A novel approach to construct the sampling schemes that converges to the posterior distribution of the latent volatilities and the parameters of interest of the Factor MSV model based on recent advances in Particle Markov chain Monte Carlo (PMCMC).
Threshold Stochastic Volatility Models with Heavy Tails: A Bayesian Approach
This paper extends the threshold stochastic volatility (THSV) model specification proposed in So et al. (2002) and Chen et al. (2008) by incorporating thick-tails in the mean equation innovation
Stochastic volatility model under a discrete mixture-of-normal specification
This paper investigates the properties of a linearized stochastic volatility (SV) model originally from Harvey et al. (Rev Econ Stud 61:247–264, 1994) under an extended flexible specification
An effcient exact Bayesian method For state space models with stochastic volatility
A Bayesian MCMC method, referred to as a marginalized mixture sampler, for state space models whose disturbances follow stochastic volatility processes, is introduced, but it is implemented without the need to simulate the mixture indicator variable.
An Efficient Exact Bayesian Method for the State Space Models with Stochastic Volatility
This paper introduces a Bayesian MCMC method, referred to as marginalized mixture sampler, for the state space model whose disturbances follow stochastic volatility processes. The marginalized
Modelling Stochastic Volatility with Leverage and Jumps: A Simulated Maximum Likelihood Approach via Particle Filtering
In this paper we provide a unified methodology for conducting likelihood-based inference on the unknown parameters of a general class of discrete-time stochastic volatility (SV) models, characterized
Alternative Asymmetric Stochastic Volatility Models
The stochastic volatility model usually incorporates asymmetric effects by introducing the negative correlation between the innovations in returns and volatility. In this paper, we propose a new


On Leverage in a Stochastic Volatility Model
This paper is concerned with specification for modelling financial leverage effect in the context of stochastic volatility (SV) models. Two alternative specifications co-exist in the literature. One
Stochastic Volatility: Likelihood Inference And Comparison With Arch Models
In this paper, Markov chain Monte Carlo sampling methods are exploited to provide a unified, practical likelihood-based framework for the analysis of stochastic volatility models. A highly effective
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
An empirical application of stochastic volatility models
This paper studies the empirical performance of stochastic volatility models for twenty years of weekly exchange rate data for four major currencies. We concentrate on the effects of the distribution

Multivariate stochastic variance models
Changes in variance, or volatility, over time can be modelled using the approach based on autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity (ARCH). However, the generalizations to multivariate series can
Markov Chain Monte Carlo Methods for Generalized Stochastic Volatility Models
This paper is concerned with Markov chain Monte Carlo based Bayesian inference in generalized models of stochastic volatility defined by heavy-tailed student-t distributions (with unknown degrees of
