Abstract: This paper aims to investigate the volatility of the French stock market using the CAC40 index on daily and monthly frequencies. For this purpose, we use linear and nonlinear ARCH models to check whether the magnitude of volatility can be explained by data frequency and cyclical nonlinearity. Our findings reveal that the EGARCH model outperforms the TGARCH model in capturing volatility for both daily and monthly data.
