Empirical Studies on Volatility in International Stock by Eugenie M.J.H. Hol

By Eugenie M.J.H. Hol

Empirical reviews on Volatility in foreign inventory Markets describes the present concepts for the size and estimation of volatility in foreign inventory markets with emphasis at the SV version and its empirical software. Eugenie Hol develops quite a few extensions of the SV version, which enable for extra variables in either the suggest and the variance equation. additionally, the forecasting functionality of SV versions is in comparison not just to that of the well-established GARCH version but in addition to implied volatility and so-called realised volatility types that are in keeping with intraday volatility measures.
The meant readers are monetary pros who search to procure extra actual volatility forecasts and need to achieve perception approximately cutting-edge volatility modelling ideas and their empirical worth, and educational researchers and scholars who're attracted to monetary industry volatility and need to acquire an up-to-date evaluate of a few of the equipment on hand during this zone.

However, when we consider the autocorrelation of the squared returns and compare its values with those of the theoretical autocorrelation functions of the Gaussian SV and GARCH models we observe that both models follow the sample autocorrelations reasonably well but that their performance deteriorates once leptokurtic distributions are imposed. Taking all the above criteria into account this then suggests that the SV model best captures the salient features of the stock index return volatility.

Inclusion of both volatility measures however results not only in a highly significant negative relation between the unexpected components but also turns the sign for the ex ante relationship which becomes weakly negative. The negative relation between the unexpected components therefore dominates the weaker, presumably positive, relation between the expected components. We further observe that the largest negative values for d are found for the shorter samples where they are also closest to being statistically significant.

1998). 27 28 Empirical Studies on Volatility in International Stock Markets The development of an SV model that includes volatility as one of the determinants of the mean makes our model suitable for empirical applications in which returns are partially dependent on volatility, such as studies that investigate the relationship between the mean and variance of stock returns. The SVM model can therefore be viewed as the SV counterpart of the ARCH-M model of Engle, Lilien and Robins (1987). The main difference between the two classes of models is that the ARCHM model intends to estimate the relationship between expected returns and expected volatility, whereas the aim of the SVM model is the simultaneous estimation of the ex ante relation between returns and volatility and the volatility feedback effect.
