Using high-frequency intraday data, we construct, test and model seven new realized volatility estimators for six international equity indices. We detect jumps in these estimators, construct the jump components of volatility and perform various tests on their properties. Then we use the class of heterogeneous autoregressive (HAR) models for assessing the relevant effects of jumps on volatility. Our results expand and complement the previous literature on the nonparametric realized volatility estimation in terms of volatility jumps being examined and modeled for the international equity market, using such a variety of new realized volatility estimators. The selection of realized volatility estimator greatly affects jump detection, magnitude and modeling. The properties each volatility estimator tries to incorporate affect the detection, magnitude and properties of jumps. These volatility-estimation and jump properties are also evident in jump modeling based on statistical and economic terms.
Quadratic variation is aimed by the volatility estimators, because it is the type of variation that is most close to the “true”-latent volatility. References for quadratic variation go back to Wiener (1924) and Levy (1937), as a development in semimartingales analysis. Rosenberg (1972b), Officer (1973), as well as the latest Merton (1980), and Schwert (1998) define and refine the elements of realized quadratic volatility. Consistently estimating the quadratic variation and integrated covariance, Back (1991) and Protter (2004) are the right references for the economics and the mathematics of semimartingales respectively. The stochastic integral of the adapted caglad process, with respect to the cadlag semimartingale, in the unique quadratic variation process of any semimartingale, is well defined by Protter (2004). Also, Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard (2001) and Andersen, Bollerslev, Diebold, and Labys (2001a) are the ones that first connect the quadratic variation with realized quadratic volatility from the financial perspective. The notional (i.e. expected in a continuous time frame) volatility concept, for diffusions with and without jumps, has recently been highlighted in a series of papers by Andersen et al. (2001a), Andersen, Bollerslev, Diebold, and Labys (2001b) and Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard, 2002a, Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard, 2002b and Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard, 2002c. Realized volatility has a long history, and is the mostly used nonparametric volatility estimator, after the introduction of high-frequency data in academics. It appears in Rosenberg (1972b), Merton (1980) and French, Schwert, and Stambaugh (1987), with Merton (1980) making the implicit connection of realized volatility with the pure scaled Brownian motion plus drift case. Poterba and Summers (1986), French et al. (1987) and Schwert (1989) were the first relying on monthly sample variances computed from daily returns and Hsieh (1989), Schwert, 1990a and Schwert, 1990b, Hsieh (1991) and Taylor and Xu (1997) exploit intraday data to compute daily sample return variance measures, with high-frequency (intraday) data. In order to estimate volatility, what we have to estimate is integrated volatility. Under the natural estimate of integrated volatility (the sum of squared returns), assuming a standard Brownian motion as price process, realized volatility estimate comes more close to the true IV, as the sampling frequency increases. Though, as sampling frequency increases, the microstructure noise also increases. Realized variation converges uniformly in probability to the quadratic variation process as the sampling interval shrinks —as shown in Andersen and Bollerslev (1998) and Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard, 2002b and Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard, 2002c. When the price path displays discontinuities, due to jumps, in the general semimartingale setting, the quadratic variation is no longer identical to the integrated volatility, because it should also include the cumulative squared jumps. The main explanation for this phenomenon is a vast array of issues collectively known as market microstructure noise, including – but not limited to – the existence of the bid-ask spread. Market microstructure noise induces autocorrelation in the intraday returns, imposing bias in the realized volatility, because of its assumption of no autocorrelation among intraday returns. In this paper we empirically investigate the presence, properties and effects of jumps on the volatility of two most important European indices and four most important U.S. American indices. Using intraday data we first construct several realized volatility estimators and then use these estimators as inputs in further analysis: in testing for jumps, in examining the properties of the resulting jump series and in modeling the jump component of volatility. We employ the methodology of Andersen, Bollerslev, and Diebold (2007), ABD hereafter, in testing for and modeling jumps. Their work, in turn, builds on earlier results of Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard, 2004, Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard, 2006 and Barndorff-Nielsen and Shephard, 2007. Of particular interest here are certain statistics of the jump component of volatility, such as the temporal dependence and duration of jumps. Then, we employ the class of heterogeneous autoregressive (HAR) models for assessing the relevant effects of jumps on volatility. In this type of models we can also disentangle the differential effect that the jump and continuous components have on volatility. The HAR class of models was introduced by Corsi (2009 — the working paper was available from 2004) and see also Corsi, Pirino, and Reno (2008) and Andersen et al. (2007). The analysis is performed for six important international equity market indices, the CAC40, DAX, COMPX, NDX, SPX and DJI indices, that differ on capitalization and other characteristics, in an attempt to see what type of effects do volatility jumps have on different markets. This is the first time, to the best of our knowledge, that this type of empirical analysis is performed for the realized volatility estimators studied. The first trial to correct realized volatility for the market microstructure noise (i.e. jumps) was from Ebens (1999) and Bollen and Inder (2002), who have used either the moving average or the autoregressive model to whiten the intraday returns, before computing the realized volatility. The realized volatility estimators – studied in the present paper – comprehend various corrections for microstructure noise. Hansen, Large, and Lunde (2005) denote a univariate and a multivariate version of a moving average based realized volatility estimator. This estimator uses a first-order moving average regression — symbolized as RVt(ma. adj1). Another moving average based realized volatility estimator is also used; in specific, this estimator uses the residuals of a second-order moving average regression and is symbolized as RVt(ma. adj2). They also propose an adjustment for all the cases, in order to capture the long-run variance of the “whiten” returns. After finding this residual series, they sum the squared residual series and multiply this sum with a numerical function of the MA coefficient. Bandi, Russell, and Yang (2008) propose different types of realized kernels. They define the Bartlett kernel estimator (RVt(bar)) in Barndorff-Nielsen et al., 2011 and Barndorff-Nielsen et al., 2008 with a number of the optimal number of return autocovariances defined by Bandi and Russell (2005). They also define the two scale realized volatility estimator of Zhang, Mykland, and Ait-Sahalia (2005) with an optimal sampling frequency (View the MathML sourceRVtmopt), estimating this frequency as the signal-to-noise ratio, like in Bandi and Russell (2005). They also define the two-scale realized volatility estimator of Zhang et al. (2005) with the optimal number of subsamples (RVt(TS,fs)), coming from Zhang et al. (2005). Bandi et al. (2008) also define the two-scale realized volatility estimator of Zhang et al. (2005) with the number of subsamples estimated by the Bartlett-type kernel weights (RVt(TS)), like the optimal number of return autocovariances in Bandi and Russell (2005). Bandi et al. (2008) also define an adjustment of the above two-scale estimator as its downward bias corrected version (RVt(TS,BC)). The number of subsamples is defined like in estimator RVt(TS). The rest of the paper is organized as follows. In Section 2 we have an overview of our empirical methodology; in Section 3 we present the data used in the paper; in Section 4 we discuss our results and in Section 5 we offer some concluding remarks.

Firstly, all returns series are almost normal. Realized volatility estimators have excess skewness and kurtosis, with a rejection of the CVM normality test and the null of no serial autocorrelation. Persistence (i.e. long-memory) is present and with high values for most of estimators and indices with an average value of 38%. We find that jumps occur about 48% of the time in our sample, an average frequency across volatility series and indices, and that they are characterized by fairly strong persistence. In terms of magnitude of jumps, View the MathML sourceRVtmopt and RVt(TS,fs) give the most robust results. Moreover, there is strong serial correlation in jump series over the entire sample period (Jt(j)) and in jumps only on days with jumps (Jt+ (j)). Though, only for the RVt(TS,BC) there is serial correlation in the durations series. The null of a zero mean in jump series over the entire sample period (Jt(j)) and jumps only on days with jumps (Jt+ (j)) is highly rejected. The effects of jumps on future volatility (in HAR-J model) are stronger than past volatility itself which tends to mitigate the much stronger jump persistence usually present in index volatility. The magnitude of the estimates past-volatility coefficients declines with the horizon. The estimated jump impacts are mostly negative and also significant indicating that jumps lead to much less future volatility that it would otherwise occur with no jumps. When we examine the joint effect of the continuous and jump components of volatility (in HAR-CJ models) we find that the jump components have a stronger effect on future volatility but the continuous components are still present and also significant. This is in contrast to the results of Andersen et al. (2007) where they found that, in the same type of model, the jump impact was insignificant. Moreover, the HAR-CJ model is more informative than the HAR-J model. The former outperforms the latter in terms of: a) the combined impact of a jump, b) the impact without jumps, c) the impact of jumps and d) the R2-values. In conclusion, there is a significant impact from the selection of the realized volatility estimator to jump detection, magnitude and modeling. The properties each volatility estimator tries to incorporate affect the detection, magnitude and properties of jumps. These volatility-estimation and jump properties are also evident in jump modeling.
