The time series dependencies of Financial volatility are frequently measured by the autocorrelation function of power-transformed absolute returns. It is known as the Taylor property that the autocorrelations of the absolute returns are larger than those of the squared returns. Hass (2009) developed a simple method for detecting the Taylor property in absolute-value-GAROH(1,1) (AVGAROH(1,1)) model. In this article, we fitted AVGAROH(1,1) model for various Korean financial time series and observed the Taylor property.
