## What is BEKK Garch?

The VAR-BEKK-GARCH model, a multivariate GARCH model proposed by Engle and Kroner (1995), estimates the conditional mean function and the conditional volatility function of high-dimensional relationships, which we use to test volatility spillovers between multi-markets.

**What is multivariate Garch model?**

MGARCH stands for multivariate GARCH, or multivariate generalized autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity. MGARCH allows the conditional-on-past-history covariance matrix of the dependent variables to follow a flexible dynamic structure. Stata fits MGARCH models.

### What is a Garch model?

In finance, the return of a security may depend on its volatility (risk). To model such phenomena, the GARCH-in-mean (GARCH-M) model adds a heteroskedasticity term into the mean equation. It has the specification: The GARCH-M(p,q) model is written as: xt=μ+λσt+at.

**What does a Garch model do?**

GARCH is a statistical model that can be used to analyze a number of different types of financial data, for instance, macroeconomic data. Financial institutions typically use this model to estimate the volatility of returns for stocks, bonds, and market indices.

## What is a DCC Garch model?

A new class of multivariate models called dynamic conditional correlation (DCC) models is proposed. These have the flexibility of univariate GARCH models coupled with parsimonious parametric models for the correlations.

**Is GARCH model useful?**

ARCH and GARCH models have become important tools in the analysis of time series data, particularly in financial applications. These models are especially useful when the goal of the study is to analyze and forecast volatility.

### What is the difference between ARCH and GARCH model?

GARCH is an extension of the ARCH model that incorporates a moving average component together with the autoregressive component. GARCH is the “ARMA equivalent” of ARCH, which only has an autoregressive component. GARCH models permit a wider range of behavior more persistent volatility.

**How do I find out the model of my GARCH?**

The steps for estimating the model are:

- Plot the data and identify any unusual observations.
- Create de GARCH Model through the stan_garch function of the bayesforecast package.
- Plot and observe the residuals of the model. If the residuals look like white noise, we proceed to make the prediction.

## How do I check my GARCH model?

The standardized residuals from the GARCH model should approach normal distribution. One can use Shapiro-Wilk test and Jarque-Bera normality test. Histogram of the residuals is also a good visual tool to check normality.

**What is a GARCH 1 1 model?**

GARCH(1,1) is for a single time series. In GARCH(1,1) model, current volatility is influenced by past innovation to volatility. Multivariate GARCH is model for two or more time series.
