Some modifications of models ARCH for financial time series
Nekvinda, Matěj ; Cipra, Tomáš (advisor) ; Zichová, Jitka (referee)
This work deals with modelling time series, especially their volatility, by methods based on the ARCH model. In the beginning, we describe the general features of financial time series, afterwards we focus on the ARCH model modifications. The described modifications are GARCH, EGARCH, GJR-GARCH and briefly GARCH-M, IGARCH, FIGARCH and QGARCH. Along with the models, there is a description of their behaviour, which frequently reflects some features of financial time series. We also mention the process of practical financial time series analysis. In the end, we demonstrate the application of GARCH, EGARCH and GJR-GARCH models for modelling values of FTSE 100 index together with diagnostic tests and prediction. Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)
Extreme value theory: Empirical analysis of tail behaviour of GARCH models
Šiml, Jan ; Šopov, Boril (advisor) ; Kocourek, David (referee)
This thesis investigates the capability of GARCH-family models to capture the tail properties using Monte Carlo simulation in framework of Conditional Extreme Value Theory. Analysis is carried out for three different GARCH-type models: GARCH, EGARCH, GJR-GARCH using Normal and Student's t-distributed innovations on four well-known stock market indices: S&P 500, FTSE 100, DAX and Nikkei 225. After conducting 3000 simulations of every estimated model, the Hill estimate of shape parameter implied by the GARCH-type models will be calculated and the models' performance will be assessed based on histograms, descriptive statistics and Root Mean Squared Error of simulated Hill estimates. Interesting results and im- plications for further research have been identified. Firstly, we highlight the Normal distribution's inappropriate nature in this case and its inability to capture the tail properties. Furthermore, GJR-GARCHT with t-distributed innovations is identified to be the best model, closely followed by other t-distributed GARCH-type models. Finally, a pattern in all Q-Q plots forecasting the simulation study results is appar- ent, with the exception of the DAX. This anomalous behaviour therefore necessitated further analysis and a significant right tail influence was recorded. Even though Hill estimates...
