Nowman, K. Ben (2002) The volatility of Japanese interest rates: evidence for Certificate of Deposit and Gensaki rates. International Review of Financial Analysis, 11 (1). pp. 29-38. ISSN 1057-5219Full text not available from this repository.
In this paper, we apply the recently introduced Gaussian estimation methodology in the estimation of a range of one factor short-term interest rate models on Japanese Certificate of Deposit (CD) and Gensaki interest rates. For Japan, the relationship between the volatility of rates and the level of rates is smaller than that reported by Chan, Karolyi, Longstaff, and Sanders (CKLS) [J. Finance 47 (1992) 1209.] for the US. We find, generally, that the CEV model performs well for these rates in terms of data fit.
