Abstract

This paper focuses on volatility modeling of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) all share index and risk estimation using the Bayesian and frequentist approaches. A Bayesian Autoregressive Moving Average-Generalized Autoregressive Conditional Heteroskedasticity (BARMA-GARCH-t) modeling of the All Share Index (ALSI) at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) under the assumption of Student-t innovations is presented. The ALSI data is for the years 2002 to 2013. Uncertainty about the true values of the GARCH parameters is incorporated into the analysis through a non-informative joint prior distribution. A comparative analysis is done with a standard GARCH model with Student-t innovations (ARMAGARCH- t) using the maximum likelihood (ML) method. Empirical results from this study show that BARMA-GARCH-t model captures well both the conditional and unconditional volatilities of the ALSI share index at the JSE. The BARMAGARCH- t model provides a better fit to the data compared to the bench mark model which is the ARMA-GARCH-t model. The results are important to stock brokers, risk and investment managers.
