Dynamic Conditional Correlation with Elliptical Distributions

Matteo Pelagatti () and Stefania Rondena

No 20060508, Working Papers from Università degli Studi di Milano-Bicocca, Dipartimento di Statistica

Abstract: The Dynamic Conditional Correlation (DCC) model of Engle has made the estimation of multivariate GARCH models feasible for reasonably big vectors of securities’ returns. In the present paper we show how Engle’s multi-step estimation of the model can be easily extended to elliptical conditional distributions and apply different leptokurtic DCC models to twenty shares listed at the Milan Stock Exchange.
