GARCH forecast volatility on stocks?

Back

I am pretty new here, I would like to ask if there are functions to call GARCH in real time.

If not, are there tutorials or sample codes I could copy to calculate GARCH for volatility of different stocks?

Thanks a lot!

Hi Aaa,

Our API does not provide any GARCH methods. We also don't currently have any example algorithms implementing the model. There are many online tutorials that demonstrate how to build them though. Try following this tutorial, which uses the arch library.

Best,

as Derek Melchin mentioned, one should use the arch package. I have used it in the past; fitting a GJR GARCH(1,1) is actually as simple as:

from arch import arch_model
def volpred(returns,h):
am = arch_model(returns, p=1,o=1, q=1, vol='Garch', dist='skewt')
res = am.fit(disp='off')
forecasts=res.forecast(horizon=h, method='simulation')
return forecasts.variance.iloc[-1]

where [-1] is used because it is being forecasted from the last index point (odd, I know). Read more @
