Bayesian estimation of an extended local scale stochastic volatility model

Contents:

Author Info

  • Deschamps, Philippe J.

Abstract

A new version of the local scale model of Shephard (1994) is presented. Its features are identically distributed evolution equation disturbances, the incorporation of in-the-mean effects, and the incorporation of variance regressors. A Bayesian posterior simulator and a new simulation smoother are presented. The model is applied to publicly available daily exchange rate and asset return series, and is compared with t-GARCH and Lognormal stochastic volatility formulations using Bayes factors.
