This paper decomposes volatility proxies according to upward and downward price movements in high-frequency financial data, and uses this decomposition for forecasting volatility. The paper introduces a simple Garch-type discrete time model that incorporates such high-frequency based statistics into a forecast equation for daily volatility. Analysis of S&P 500 index tick data over the years 1988-2006 shows that taking into account the downward movements improves forecast accuracy significantly. The R2 statistic for evaluating daily volatility forecasts attains a value of 0.80, both for in-sample and out-of-sample prediction.
