Bayesian Estimation of the GARCH(1,1) Model with Student-t Innovations
AbstractThis note presents the R package bayesGARCH (Ardia, 2007) which provides functions for the Bayesian estimation of the parsimonious and effective GARCH(1,1) model with Student- t innovations. The estimation procedure is fully automatic and thus avoids the tedious task of tuning a MCMC sampling algorithm. The usage of the package is shown in an empirical application to exchange rate logreturns.
