The Dyanamic Location/Scale Model: with applications to intra-day financial data

CWPE1240

Abstract: In dynamic conditional score models, the innovation term of the dynamic specification is the score of the conditional distribution. These models are investigated for non-negative variables, using distributions from the generalized beta and generalized gamma families. The log-normal distribution is also considered. Applications to the daily range of stock market indices are reported and models are fitted to duration data.
