Abstract

Quantile regression methods are suggested for a class of ARCH models. Because conditional quantiles are readily interpretable in semiparametric ARCH models and are inherendy easier to estimate robustly than population moments, they offer some advantages over more familiar methods based on Gaussian likelihoods. Related inference methods, including the construction of prediction intervals, are also briefly discussed.
