mfGARCH - mixed-frequency GARCH models

An R package for estimating GARCH-MIDAS (MIxed-DAta-Sampling) models (Engle, Ghysels and Sohn, 2013, doi:10.1162/REST_a_00300) and related statistical inference, accompanying the paper "Two are better than one: Volatility forecasting using multiplicative component GARCH models" by Conrad and Kleen (2020, doi:10.1002/jae.2742). The GARCH-MIDAS model decomposes the conditional variance of (daily) stock returns into a short- and long-term component, where the latter may depend on an exogenous covariate sampled at a lower frequency.

Highlights

  • A comprehensive toolbox for estimating and forecasting using GARCH-MIDAS models
  • Easy to use, both with one or two explanatory covariates
  • Built for handling irregularly spaced mixed-frequency data
