Abstract: In this study, we model realized volatility constructed from intra-day high-frequency data. We explore the possibility of confusing long memory andstructural breaks in the realized volatility of the following spot exchange rates: EUR/USD, EUR/JPY, EUR/CHF, EUR/GBP, and EUR/AUD. The results show evidence for the presence of long memory in the exchange rates’ realized volatility. From the Bai–Perron test, we found structural breakpoints that match significant events in financial markets. Furthermore, the findings provide strong evidence in favour of the presence of long memory.
