I used the rugarch package of R v.3.2.5 to fit a hybrid ARMA(1,0)+EGARCH(2,1) model to a series of log-returns on an exchange rate.

My question is:

How should I compute the following measures to describe the conditional variance dynamics of the above hybrid model?

Duration of persistence, ARCH and GARCH effects, Leverage effect, Degree of asymmetry, Intensity of negative shocks, Intensity of positive shocks.

Thank you in advance.

  • $\begingroup$ What have you tried so far? Have you checked the original paper by Nelson that introduces EGARCH? Have you check any textbook, e.g. Tsay "Analysis of Financial Time Series"? $\endgroup$ Sep 14, 2016 at 16:25
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I consulted both among other texts. My question is about how to compute those measures for an EGARCH which is not the typical EGARCH(1,1) that is found in many papers. I hope this is understood in my question. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You can neglect the ARMA part, then the only difference is EGARCH(2,1) against the standard EGARCH(1,1), right? $\endgroup$ Sep 14, 2016 at 17:24
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, let's neglect the ARMA part for the sake of this question. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It's not a choice to neglect ARMA, it actually does not play a role in your question. So am I right about the last part? $\endgroup$ Sep 14, 2016 at 19:07
