Wavelet Estimation of Integrated Volatility∗

Abstract

In this paper we derive an estimator of integrated volatility using wavelet methods. We demonstrate that the performance of this estimator is indeed as good as a Fourier based method by Malliavin & Mancino (2002). Computationally the wavelet based method is preferable. This result emerges in a series of simulations of a stochastic volatility commonly used… (More)
