Abstract

Normal mixture GARCH models capture the time variation of variance, skewness and kurtosis that characterizes financial data. These models are more flexible and have been shown to offer a better fit than symmetric and asymmetric t-GARCH models. In this paper we give a weak definition for the normal mixture GARCH(1,1) model that is aggregating in time. This result paves the way for the analysis of the continuous time limits of such models.
