Forecasting volatility of the ASEAN-5 stock markets: a nonlinear approach with non-normal errors
Guidi, Francesco and Gupta, Rakesh (2012) Forecasting volatility of the ASEAN-5 stock markets: a nonlinear approach with non-normal errors. Discussion Paper. Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia.Full text not available from this repository.
This paper aims to model and forecast the volatility of stock markets belonging to the five founder members of the Association of South-East Asian Nations, referred to as the ASEAN-5. By using Asymmetric-PARCH (APARCH) models with two different distributions (Student-t and GED) we aim to identify whether or not an asymmetric effect characterises the relation among stock return and volatility in the ASEAN-5 markets as well as under which statistical distribution these models perform better. By using several forecast error measures we show that APARCH models with t-distribution usually perform better.
