چکیده

In this paper we propose a new multivariate GARCH model with timevarying correlations. We adopt the vech representation based on the conditional variances and the conditional correlations. While each conditional-variance term is assumed to follow a univariate GARCH formulation, the conditional-correlation matrix is postulated to follow an autoregressive moving average type of analogue. By imposing some suitable restrictions on the conditional-correlation-matrix equation, we manage to construct a MGARCH model in which the conditional-correlation matrix is guaranteed to be positive de ̄nite during the optimisation. Thus, our new model retains the intuition and interpretation of the univariate GARCH model and yet satis ̄es the positive-de ̄nite condition as found in the constant-correlation and BEKK models. We report some Monte Carlo results on the ̄nite-sample distributions of the QMLE of the varying-correlation MGARCH model. The new model is applied to some real data sets. It is found that extending the constant-correlation model to allow for time-varying correlations provides some interesting time histories that are not available in a constant-correlation model.

Garch Models of Dynamic Volatility and Correlation

Economic and financial time series typically exhibit time varying conditional (given the past) standard deviations and correlations. The conditional standard deviation is also called the volatility. Higher volatilities increase the risk of assets, and higher conditional correlations cause an increased risk in portfolios. Therefore, models of time varying volatilities and correlations are essent...

Semiparametric Multivariate GARCH Models for Volatility Asymmetries and Dynamic Correlations

We propose a simple class of semiparametric multivariate GARCH models, allowing for asymmetric volatilities and time-varying conditional correlations. Estimates for time-varying conditional correlations are constructed by means of a convex combination of estimates for averaged correlations (across all assets) and dynamic realized (historical) correlations. Our model is very parsimonious. Estima...

Average Conditional Correlation and Tree Structures for Multivariate GARCH Models

We propose a simple class of multivariate GARCH models, allowing for time-varying conditional correlations. Estimates for time-varying conditional correlations are constructed by means of a convex combination of averaged correlations (across all series) and dynamic realized (historical) correlations. Our model is very parsimonious. Estimation is computationally feasible in very large dimensions...

Multivariate GARCH Models with Correlation Clustering

This paper proposes a new clustered correlation multivariate GARCH model (CCMGARCH) that allows conditional correlations to form clusters. This model can generalize the time-varying correlation structure in Tse and Tsui (2002) by determining a natural grouping of the correlations among the series. To estimate the proposed model, we adopt Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods. Two efficient sampling ...
