Forecasting of Realised Volatility with the Random Forests Algorithm
MetadataShow full item record
The paper addresses the forecasting of realised volatility for financial time series using the heterogeneous autoregressive model (HAR) and machine learning techniques. We consider an extended version of the existing HAR model with included purified implied volatility. For this extended model, we apply the random forests algorithm for the forecasting of the direction and the magnitude of the realised volatility. In experiments with historical high frequency data, we demonstrate improvements of forecast accuracy for the proposed model.
