Realize the Realized Stock Index Volatility
This paper constructs estimates of daily stock index volatilities and correlation using high-frequency (one-minute) intraday stock indices. The key feature of these 'realized' volatilities and
Asymmetric Realized Volatility Risk
In this paper we document that realized variation measures constructed from high-frequency returns reveal a large degree of volatility risk in stock and index returns, where we characterize
Does Realized Skewness Predict the Cross-Section of Equity Returns?
We use intraday data to compute weekly realized moments for equity returns and study their time-series and cross-sectional properties. Buying stocks in the lowest realized skewness decile and selling
Realized Volatility Risk
In this paper we document that realized variation measures constructed from high-frequency returns reveal a large degree of volatility risk in stock and index returns, where we characterize
The Effect of Long Memory in Volatility on Stock Market Fluctuations
Recent empirical evidence demonstrates the presence of an important long-memory component in realized asset return volatility. We specify and estimate multivariate models for the joint dynamics of
The Impact of Microstructure Noise on the Distributional Properties of Daily Stock Returns Standardized by Realized Volatility
Previous studies find that daily stock returns standardized by realized volatility are approximately standard normal. This evidence suggests that jumps are not an empirically relevant feature of
Realized Volatility
Realized volatility is a nonparametric ex-post estimate of the return variation. The most obvious realized volatility measure is the sum of finely-sampled squared return realizations over a fixed
Realized volatility in the futures markets
Intra-day realized volatility for European and USA stock indices
The paper constructs measures of intra-day realized volatility for 17 European and USA stock indices. We utilize a model-free de-noising method by assembling the realized volatility in sampling
Expected Stock Returns and Variance Risk Premia
We find that the difference between implied and realized variances, or the variance risk premium, is able to explain more than fifteen percent of the ex-post time series variation in quarterly excess


The Distribution of Realized Exchange Rate Volatility
Using high-frequency data on deutschemark and yen returns against the dollar, we construct model-free estimates of daily exchange rate volatility and correlation that cover an entire decade. Our
Heteroskedasticity in Stock Returns
We use predictions of aggregate stock return variances from daily data to estimate time varying monthly variances for size-ranked portfolios. We propose and estimate a single factor model of
Return Volatility and Trading Volume: An Information Flow Interpretation of Stochastic Volatility
This paper develops an empirical return volatility-trading volume model from a microstructure framework in which informational asymmetries and liquidity needs motivate trade in response to
Modeling and Forecasting Realized Volatility
A general framework for integration of high-frequency intraday data into the measurement, modeling, and forecasting of daily and lower frequency volatility and return distributions is provided and the links between the conditional covariance matrix and the concept of realized volatility are formally developed.
Heteroskedasticity in Stock Return Data: Volume versus GARCH Effects
This paper provides empirical support for the notion that autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity in daily stock return data reflects time dependence in the process generating information flow
The relation between implied and realized volatility
On the Relation between the Expected Value and the Volatility of the Nominal Excess Return on Stocks
The authors find support for a negative relation between conditional expected monthly return and conditional variance of monthly return using a GARCH-M model modified by allowing (1) seasonal
Good News, Bad News, Volatility, and Betas
The authors investigate the conditional covariances of stock returns using bivariate exponential ARCH models. These models allow market volatility, portfolio-specific volatility, and beta to respond
