摘要:This paper introduces a novel dynamic generalized extreme value (GEV) framework for modeling the time-varying behavior of maxima in financial time series. Specifically, an autoregressive conditional Frechet (AcF) model is proposed in which the maxima is modeled by a Frechet distribution with time-varying scale parameter (volatility) and shape parameter (tail index) conditioned on past information. The AcF provides a direct and accurate modeling of the time-varying behavior of maxima and offers a new angle to study the tail risk dynamics in financial markets. Probabilistic properties of AcF are studied and a maximum likelihood estimator is used for model estimation, with its statistical properties investigated. Simulations show the flexibility of AcF and confirm the reliability of its estimators. Two real data examples on cross-sectional stock returns and high-frequency foreign exchange returns are used to demonstrate the AcF modeling approach, where significant improvement over the static GEV has been observed for market tail risk monitoring and conditional VaR estimation. With the established parameter dynamics, the AcF model shows a natural advantage for researchers and practitioners to do simulations and conduct further inference based on simulated data (A joint work with Zifeng Zhao and Rong Chen.)
