Analyzing Oil Futures with a Dynamic Nelson-Siegel Model

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The dynamic Nelson-Siegel model is used to model the term structure of futures contracts on oil and obtain forecasts of prices of these contracts. Three factors are extracted and modelled in a very flexible framework. The outcome of this exercise is a class of models which describes the observed prices of futures contracts well and performs better than conventional benchmarks in realistic real-time out-of-sample exercises.
