The Tunisian stock market index volatility: Long memory vs. switching regime

Lanouar Charfeddine () and Ahdi Noomen Ajmi

Emerging Markets Review, 2013, vol. 16, issue C, 170-182

Abstract: This paper investigates the dilemma of long memory versus a switching regime for the Tunisian stock market index volatility. Precisely, different specifications of the Fractionally Integrated GARCH (FIGARCH) model of Baillie et al. (1996) and Switching ARCH (SWARCH) model of Hamilton and Susmel (1994) have been estimated under both Gaussian and Student error distributions.
