### Local scale models: state space alternative to integrated GARCH processes

Abstract:

State space alternative to autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity models are proposed. The initial model, which is labelled the Gaussian local scale model, has a measurement density which is Gaussian, conditional on the unobservable precision. The precision is assumed to be a gamma variable which evolves by being scaled by a beta variable. The resulting forecast is a student's t random variable, with a scale which is approximately an exponentially weighted moving average (EWMA) of the ...
