Stochastic conditonal range, a latent variable model for financial volatility

Fausto Galli ()

MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: In this paper I introduce a latent variable augmented version of the conditional autoregressive range (CARR) model. The new model, called stochastic conditional- range (SCR) can be estimated by Kalman filter or by efficient importance sampling depending on the hypotheses on the distributional form of the innovations. A predic- tive accuracy comparison with the CARR model shows that the new approach can provide an interesting alternative.
