Extreme value theory for a class of EGARCH processes is developed. It is shown that the EGARCH process as well as the logarithm of its conditional variance lie in the domain of attraction of the Gumbel distribution. Norming constants are obtained and it is shown that the considered processes...
Empirical volatility changes in time and exhibits tails, which are heavier than normal. Moreover, empirical volatility has - sometimes quite substantial - upwards jumps and clusters on high levels. We investigate classical and nonclassical stochastic volatility models with respect to their...
We use a discrete time analysis, giving necessary and sufficient conditions for the almost sure convergence of ARCH(1) and GARCH(1,1) discrete time models, to suggest an extension of the (G)ARCH concept to continuous time processes. Our COGARCH (continuous time GARCH) model, based on a single...
We use a discrete time analysis, giver necessary and sufficient conditions for the almost sure convergence of ARCH(1) and GARCH(1,1) discrete time models, to suggest an extension of the (G)ARCH concept to continuous time processes. The models, based on a single background driving Lévy process,...
We compare the probabilistic properties of the non-Gaussian Ornstein-Uhlenbeck based stochastic volatility model of Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard (2001) with those of the COGARCH process. The latter is a continuous time GARCH process introduced by the authors (2004). Many features are shown to...
