This note discusses some aspects of the paper by Hu and Tsay (2014), “Principal Volatility Component Analysis”. The key issues are considered, and are also related to existing conditional covariance and correlation models. Some caveats are given about multivariate models of time-varying conditional covariance and correlation models.

Asymmetric Realized Volatility Risk Allen, D. E.; McAleer, M.; Scharth, M. (University of Canterbury. Department of Economics and Finance, 2014)In this paper we document that realized variation measures constructed from highfrequency returns reveal a large degree of volatility risk in stock and index returns, where we characterize volatility risk by the extent ...
Forecasting Co-Volatilities via Factor Models with Asymmetry and Long Memory in Realized Covariance Asai, M.; McAleer, M. (University of Canterbury. Department of Economics and Finance, 2014)Modelling covariance structures is known to suffer from the curse of dimensionality. In order to avoid this problem for forecasting, the authors propose a new factor multivariate stochastic volatility (fMSV) model for ...
A One Line Derivation of EGARCH McAleer, M.; Hafner, C. M. (University of Canterbury. Department of Economics and Finance, 2014)One of the most popular univariate asymmetric conditional volatility models is the exponential GARCH (or EGARCH) specification. In addition to asymmetry, which captures the different effects on conditional volatility of ...
