The volatility pattern of financial time series is often characterized by several peaks and abrupt changes, consistent with the time-varying coefficients of the underlying data-generating process. As a consequence, the model-based classification of the volatility of a set of assets could vary over a period of time.We propose a procedure to classify the unconditional volatility obtained from an extended family of Multiplicative Error Models with time-varying coefficients to verify if it changes in correspondence with different regimes or particular dates. The proposed procedure is experimented on 15 stock indices.

Abstract

The volatility pattern of financial time series is often characterized by several peaks and abrupt changes, consistent with the time-varying coefficients of the underlying data-generating process. As a consequence, the model-based classification of the volatility of a set of assets could vary over a period of time.We propose a procedure to classify the unconditional volatility obtained from an extended family of Multiplicative Error Models with time-varying coefficients to verify if it changes in correspondence with different regimes or particular dates. The proposed procedure is experimented on 15 stock indices.
