Abstract :

Volatility forecasts indicate future risk and are key inputs in financial analysis. We fore-cast the realized variance, an observable measure of volatility, of several major international stock market indices and account for the differing predictive information present in jump, continuous, and option-implied variance components. We allow for volatility spillovers of different stock markets by using a multivariate modeling approach. To obtain the forecasts, we use an ordered lasso-based forecast approach. A simple forecast combination of the uni-variate and multivariate model outperforms the benchmark model for all considered forecast horizons and stock markets.

Keywords: Forecast combination, Ordered Lasso, Realized variance, Volatility forecasting.
