A new class of discrete-time stochastic volatility model with correlated errors

Returns of risky assets and their time-dependent volatility are often jointly modelled by stochastic volatility models (SVMs). Over the last few decades, several SVMs have been proposed to adequately capture the features of the relationship between the return and its volatility. The earliest SVM con...(Read Full Abstract)
