What are the well known methods for forecasting (daily - weekly - monthly) volatility of a stock price? How about a bond price?

Let's say I have in my disposition the price time series at a very high frequency. How should I avoid dealing with the micro structure of the market?

Thanks

For your first question there a 2 types of models: stochastic volatility and GARCH which need as an imput the return of asset. For HF data this models can be modified, I am not familiar with SV models but GARCH type would be a fractional integraded GARCH (FIGARCH) or a multiplicación componentes GARCH (mcsGARCH). There are some stailized fact od HF data that you have to take into acount like diurnal seasonality and a lot of autocorrelation, there are more that you could search un google or search note un this page bacause there are tons of cuestiona about thia topic

My favorite model of volatility is the HAR RV model by Fulvio Corsi. Good combination of simplicity and accuracy.

About the microstructure issue: you cannot avoid dealing with it, it is important if you are computing volatility from very high frequency.
