Abstract: This study tests the presence of the day-of-the-week effect on stock market volatility of six European stock markets. Using a GARCH or GARCH-GJR specifications for the variance equation, we find that the day of week effect is present in volatility equation. Finally, we test whether the statistically significant in-sample findings regarding seasonality in volatility lead to better out-of-sample forecasts of volatility.
