GARCH model


Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedastic (GARCH) models for Julia.

What is implemented

  • garchFit - estimates parameters of univariate normal GARCH process.
  • predict - make prediction using fitted object returned by garchFit
  • garchPkgTest - runs package test (compares model parameters with those obtained using R fGarch)
  • Jarque-Bera residuals test
  • Error analysis

Analysis of model residuals - currently only Jarque-Bera Test implemented.

What is not ready yet

  • More complex GARCH models
  • Comprehensive set of residuals tests
  • n-step forecasts

Usage

garchFit

estimates parameters of univariate normal GARCH process.

arguments:

data - data vector

returns:

Structure containing details of the GARCH fit with the following fields:

  • data - orginal data
  • params - vector of model parameters (omega,alpha,beta)
  • llh - likelihood
  • status - status of the solver
  • converged - boolean convergence status, true if constraints are satisfied
  • sigma - conditional volatility
  • hessian - Hessian matrix
  • secoef - standard errors
  • tval - t-statistics

predict

make volatility prediction

arguments:

fit - fitted object returned by garchFit

returns:

one-step-ahead volatility forecast

Example

using GARCH
using Quandl
quotes = quandl("YAHOO/INDEX_GSPC")
ret = diff(log(quotes["Close"]))
ret = ret - mean(ret)
garchFit(convert(Vector,ret[end-199:end]))
