Abstract

Whether it is possible to improve realised volatility forecasts by conditioning on macroeconomic and financial variables is tested. We employ complete subset combinations of both linear and quantile forecasts in order to construct robust and accurate stock market volatility predictions. Our findings suggest that the complete subset approach delivers statistically significant out-of-sample forecasts relative to the autoregressive benchmark and traditional combination schemes. A recursive algorithm that selects, in real time, the best complete subset for each predictive regression quantile succeeds in identifying the best subset in a time- and quantile-varying manner.
