Volatility Modeling

  • Is there some kind of seasonality present in the volatility of the roll adjusted price curves?
    • Can you model the volatility?
      • GARCH,
      • ARIMA,
      • Holt-Winter are,
      • Other models
  • If we can model the volatility, can we impelent this in the trend system?
    • Does this add value to the original system?
    • Can you put a number on the possible value added?
