[GARCH add-in]

ARCH or GARCH models, which stand for (generalized) autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity, have become widespread tools for dealing with time series heteroskedasticity. The goal of such models is to measure and modelling volatility (variance or standard deviation), that can be used in financial decision.

The "standard" GARCH(p,q) model is defined by:

and could be estimated by the Maximum Likelihood Method (MLE).
[web:reg] [garch add-in] is an Microsoft Excel add-in, which estimates a "standard" GARCH model.

This Add-In is BETA.


The parameters of a GARCH(p,q) model could be estimated bei the Maximum Likelihodd method (MLE). This Add-In assumes a GARCH(p,q) model with Gaussian shocks.

The non linear estimation will be done by the BFGS method (a limited-memory quasi-Newton method).

Please note, that the Add-in is Beta.
