The subprime and European sovereign crises have shown the need for better econometric techniques to understand asset price fluctuations, market uncertainty and global risk spillovers. The availability of high frequency data and the rise of high frequency trading also raise new research and policy questions. Researchers and econometricians continue to develop new tools and methods that help explain how volatility varies over time and whether or not volatility risk is transmitted across regions and asset classes. Given these recent advances, the primary objective of this Special Issue is to foster the latest research progress on volatility dynamics with the main theme on the econometric analysis of financial volatility modeling, measurement and forecasting from both theoretical and applied/empirical perspectives. We invite submissions on topics that are broadly related (but not limited) to:
- Volatility analysis with high-frequency data,
- Measurement of volatility risk and premium,
- Determinants of volatility: the role of news announcements,
- Volatility networks and (inter)connectedness,
- Price volatility and market microstructure,
- Econometric assessment of market volatility and monetary policy,
- Multivariate volatility estimation and co-jumps,
- High frequency trading (HFT) and price volatility,
- Volatility of volatility and jumps: new tests and inference
- Volatility forecasting and macroeconomic uncertainty
- Non-linear volatility models and implications for portfolio optimization
