Volatility forecasts evaluation and comparison

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

This article surveys the most important developments in volatility forecast comparison and model selection. We review a number of evaluation methods and testing procedures for predictive accuracy based on statistical loss functions. We also review recent contributions on the admissible form of loss functions ensuring consistency of the ordering when forecast performances are evaluated with respect to an imperfect volatility proxy. The techniques discussed are illustrated using artificial and EUR/USD exchange rate data.
