Šimandl, M. and Královec, J. : Cramér-Rao bound for stochastic volatility model . Proceedings of the 15th IFAC world congress, p. 173-178, Pergamon, Oxford, 2003.


Estimation problem for the stochastic volatility (SV) model, which is significant in financial conometrics, is discussed. Recursive relations for computation of the Cramér-Rao (CR) bound are derived for state and parameter estimation of this model. An attention is paid to regularity conditions for CR bound calculation. As the CR bound represents a lower bound of the mean-square error of an estimate, it can serve as a gauge of quality of nonlinear estimators for the SV model.
