  1. 1. A STUDY ON THE DCC-GARCH MODEL’S FORECASTING ABILITY WITH VALUE-AT-RISK APPLICATIONS ON THE SCANDINAVIAN FOREIGN EXCHANGE MARKET

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Statistiska institutionen; Uppsala universitet/Statistiska institutionen

    Author : Tim Andersson-Säll; Johan Lindskog; [2019]
    Keywords : Multivariate GARCH; Conditional Correlations; Forecasting; Time-varying covariance matrices; Exchange rate returns; Variance-Covariance matrix;

    Abstract : This thesis has treated the subject of DCC-GARCH model’s forecasting ability and Value-at- Risk applications on the Scandinavian foreign exchange market. The estimated models were based on daily opening foreign exchange spot rates in the period of 2004-2013, which captured the information in the financial crisis of 2008 and Eurozone crisis in the early 2010s.
