Abstract
We introduce the notion of continuously invertible volatility models that relies on some Lyapunov condition and some regularity condition. We show that it is almost equivalent to the volatilities forecasting efﬁciency of the parametric inference approach based on the Stochastic Recurrence Equation (SRE) given in Straumann (2005). Under very weak assumptions, we prove the strong consistency and the asymptotic normality of an estimator based on the SRE. From this parametric estimation, we deduce a natural forecast of the volatility that is strongly consistent. We successfully apply this approach to recover known results on univariate and multivariate GARCH type models where our estimator coincides with the QMLE. In the EGARCH(1,1)model, we apply this approach to ﬁnd a strongly consistence forecast and to prove that our estimator is asymptotically normal when the limiting covariance matrix exists. Finally, we give some encouraging empirical results of our approach on simulations and real data.
