Modeling the conditional volatility asymmetry of business cycles in four OECD countries: A multivariate GARCH approach

Ho, Kin-Yip; Tsui, A K; Zhang, Zhaoyong


There are many studies on the business cycle indicators in the past decades, but mostly focusing on the asymmetric and non-linear features of business cycles incorporated into the conditional mean equation rather than the conditional variance formulation. Recently, the hypothesis of volatility asymmetry in business cycle indicators has been re-examined by, for instance, Ho and Tsui (2003 and 2004) using univariate asymmetric power ARCH (APARCH) and EGARCH models. However, the main drawback of...[Show more]
