Realized Volatility

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


Realized volatility is a fully nonparametric approach to ex post measurement of the actual realized return variation over a specific trading period. It encompasses specific empirical procedures and an associated continuous-record asymptotic theory for arbitrage-free jump diffusions. It provides the ideal model-free benchmark for volatility model performance evaluation, and it has numerous natural areas of application within financial economics.
