International Journal of Business and Economics, 2002, vol. 1, issue 1, 17-24

Abstract: In this paper we investigate the intra-day properties of a recently proposed realized volatility concept using Istanbul Stock Exchange (ISE) 5-minute data returns for the period 1997 to 2000. Using GARCH as a benchmark, we confirm recent findings in the literature that realized volatility provides a better fit than the normal GARCH model.
