Financial econometrics combines mathematical and statistical theory and techniques to understand and solve problems in financial economics. Modeling and forecasting financial time series, such as prices, returns, interest rates, financial ratios, and defaults, are important parts of this field. In Financial Econometrics, you2ll be introduced to this growing discipline and the concepts associated with it-from background material on probability theory and statistics to information regarding the properties of specific models and their estimation procedures. With this book as your guide, you2ll become familiar with: Autoregressive conditional heteroskedasticity (ARCH) and GARCH modeling …
