A no-arbitrage approach to range-based estimation of return covariances and correlations


Journal Article (Review)

We extend range-based volatility estimation to the multivariate case. In particular, we propose a range-based covariance estimator motivated by a key financial economic consideration, the absence of arbitrage, in addition to statistical considerations. We show that this estimator is highly efficient yet robust to the market microstructure noise arising from bidask bounce and asynchronous trading. © 2006 by The University of Chicago.
