ABSTRACT

We consider continuous-time stochastic volatility models driven by fractional Brownian motion. Due to the non-Markovianity and high-dimensionality of the latent paths, estimating posterior expectations is a computationally challenging undertaking. We present a re-parameterisation framework based on the Davies and Harte method for sampling stationary Gaussian processes and use this framework to construct a hybrid Monte Carlo algorithm that allows computationally efficient Bayesian inference despite the high-dimensional latent variables arising in this context. The hybrid Monte Carlo algorithm can either be used on its own or undertake the task of the rejuvenation step in a sequential Monte Carlo algorithm. The latter not only allows a more robust computational scheme, but also offers a model choice framework that can be based on either i) the marginal likelihood estimates or ii) model predictive performance through the sequences of posterior predictive distributions. The methodology is illustrated on both simulated data and the S&P500 time series.
