  • In modelling volatility in financial time series, the generalized autoregressive conditional heteroscedastic (GARCH) model has achieved great success and been widely applied. In this article, we study the weighted quantile regression estimator for GARCH models. This method involves a sequence of weights and takes a data-driven weighting scheme to maximize the asymptotic efficiency of the estimators. Under regularity conditions, we establish asymptotic distributions of the proposed estimators for a variety of heavy- or light-tailed error distributions including the normal, mixed-normal, Student's t, Cauchy distributions, etc.. We also present our simulation results and a real data analysis for illustration.
