Abstract

This paper examines the behavior of several implied volatility indexes in order to compare them with the volatility forecasts obtained from estimating a GARCH model. Though volatility has always been a prevailing subject of research it has become particularly relevant given the increasingly complexity and uncertainty of stock markets in these days. An important measure to assess the market expectations of the future volatility of the underlying asset is the implied volatility IV indexes. Generally, these indexes are calculated based on the prices of out-of-the money put and call options on the underlying asset. Sometimes called the -investor fear gauge-, the IV indexes are a measure of the implied volatility of the underlying index. This study focuses on the implied and GARCH forecasted volatility of some emerging countries and some developed countries. More specifically, it compares the predictive power of the IV indexes with the ones provided by standard volatility models such as the ARCH-GARCH Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity Model- Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity Model type models. Finally, a debate of the results is also provided.
