Quantitative Finance Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for finance professionals and academics. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I am looking for a R library for modeling a Markov-Switching E-GARCH process.

In other questions at StackExchange related to GARCH models, the package rugarch is often mentionned. Do you recommend it in my case?

I would like that R library I am seeking had the following features:

  • allows to observe/control the volatility term structure
  • allows to impose long-term volatility
  • has calibration routines
  • includes forecasting procedures

In fact, I would like to carry out a volatility analysis work à la Carole Alexander, as described in her book Market Risk Analysis Volume II: Practical Financial Econometrics.

Thank you.
