Hurst parameter estimation for fractional Brownian motion and ARCH models.

People:

Description:

Time series data for financial returns is typically uncorrelated with but with heavy dependence of long range type. While it has been understood for several years that such time series bears a strong connection with the fractional Brownian motion (fBm), here we show that this connection can be explained using a simple coupling argument, not just a mere convergence in distribution, and that this coupling can be the basis for an estimation scheme for the fBm's Hurst parameter, using a specific ARCH model's conditional maximum likelihood estimator.
