We introduce a new conceptually superior realised volatility estimator, volume weighted volatility (VWV), which effectively measures demand-based volatility, rather than only measuring the variability of a price series. We compare the VWV to other return- and range-based measures using the stock index futures, with our results supporting the empirical uniqueness of VWV. First, regressions show that the VWV provides unique information. Second, VWV is (only) weakly associated with other… 
Volatility Depend on Market Trades and Macro Theory
This paper presents probability distributions for price and returns random processes for averaging time interval {\Delta}. These probabilities determine properties of price and returns volatility. We
Price, Volatility and the Second-Order Economic Theory
This paper considers price volatility as the reason for description of the second-degree economic variables, trades and expectations aggregated during certain time interval Δ. We call it - the
Three Remarks On Asset Pricing
We consider the time interval Δ during which the market trade time-series are averaged as the key factor of the consumption-based asset-pricing model that causes modification of the basic pricing
To VaR, or Not to VaR, That is the Question
We consider the core problems of the conventional value-at-risk (VaR) based on the price probability determined by frequencies of trades at a price p during an averaging time interval Δ. To protect
Classical Option Pricing and Some Steps Further
This paper modifies single assumption in the base of classical option pricing model and derives further extensions for the Black-Scholes-Merton equation. We regard the price as the ratio of the cost


Persistence of volatility in futures markets
This article examines the characteristics of key measures of volatility for different types of futures contracts to provide a better foundation for modeling volatility behavior and derivative values.
A comparative study of range‐based stock return volatility estimators for the German market
This study investigates the relative performance of various volatility estimators based on daily and intraday price ranges of 25 German equities, with the two-scales realized volatility used as a
Volatility and Covariation of Financial Assets: A High-Frequency Analysis
Using high frequency data for the price dynamics of equities we measure the impact that market microstructure noise has on estimates of the: (i) volatility of returns; and (ii) variance–covariance
An Empirical Study of Volatility and Trading Volume Dynamics Using High-Frequency Data
This paper examines the dynamic relationship of volatility and trading volume using a bivariate vector autoregressive methodology. This study found bidirectional causal relations between trading
Volume, Volatility, and the Dispersion of Beliefs
I examine a two-period noisy rational expectations model of a futures market and show that the dispersion of expectations about a weighted average of future prices measures both the additional
A comparative study of alternative extreme‐value volatility estimators
Recent advances in econometric methodology and newly available sources of data are used to examine empirically the performance of the various extreme‐value volatility estimators that have been
Forecasting Volatility in Financial Markets: A Review
Financial market volatility is an important input for investment, option pricing, and financial market regulation. The emphasis of this review article is on forecasting instead of modelling; it
Nontrading, market-making, and estimates of stock price volatility
Abstract We examine the effects of market making and intermittent trading on estimates of stock price volatility. When observed price changes are correctly tied to a stock's true price dynamics, it
Realized volatility in the futures markets
Abstract Using intraday returns on four futures contracts over a 5-year period, we calculate and analyze model-free measures of futures return volatility. We focus on the temporal characteristics and
The Distribution of 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, covering an entire decade. In
