4th Workshop on Financial Econometrics and Empirical Modeling of Financial Markets

The unprecedented changes in financial markets present a major task for econometric modeling. The increasing complexity of financial models requires equally sophisticated empirical methods. This workshop attempts to bring together researchers from different areas to address these challenges. We invite researchers to present their original work on related topics including, but not necessarily limited to, the following:

  • Macroeconomic effects of uncertainty
  • Forecast errors and overshooting of expectations
  • Spillover effects in expectations and uncertainty
  • Uncertainty and disagreement modeling
  • Monetary and fiscal policy transmission in times of uncertainty
  • Determinants and updates of individual forecasts
  • Information rigidities and heterogeneous expectations
  • Household and professional expectations
  • Experimental evidence on expectations and uncertainty
  • Modeling exchange rates, monetary policy and stock markets
  • Contagion and spillovers
  • Forecasting under model and parameter uncertainty
  • Bayesian modeling of financial markets

Date and Venue:

The workshop will be held on May 4 and 5, 2020 at Chemnitz University of Technology.
