### Interpreting parameters on Matlab from Patton's code on time varying copulas

I ran Andrew Patton's code (2006) for Markov switching time varying copulas with an example code given in the Matlab tool box. This is the equation for Markov switching time varying normal copulas I ...

### Reference request: Approximate mapping of a multi-factor stochastic volatility model to single-factor stochastic volatility model

I am looking for approaches to transform a more complicated stochastic volatility model such as the one shown in Section 2.2 of Smile Dynamics II to a single-factor model such as the one shown in ...

### Is variance of residuals of Markov switching GARCH model regime specific?

I'm using MSGARCH package in R. By return_data/Volatility(fit.model), I get the residuals. When I calculate the standard deviation of the residuals, it turns out that it's close to 1 for all residuals....

### Joint Distribution of Correlated Variables with Markov Switching

I am modeling a portfolio of correlated assets whose lack of liquidity can be reasonably described by a Markov-switching model. That is, not only is movement size among assets correlated, but so is ...

### Which method would you use to compare if a time series of financial returns has more "clusterized volatility" than another?

It is known that the historical series of financial returns are characterized by the so-called volatility clustering. Suppose we approximate the number of two-type clusters, namely the high and low ...

### Markov switching regime for stock returns

I want to see if day of the week (or month) has some effect on stock returns. I want to use Markov switching model to identify different regimes in time series. If $Y_1,Y_2,...Y_t$ are stock returns,...
