The qualitative threshold GARCH model by Gourieroux and Monfort (1992) has similar features where t is a stepwise function of the past t values. Nelson (1991) proposed the exponential GARCH (EGARCH) model that we presented earlier. In this model, as in the TGARCH model, positive and negative innovations of equal size do not generate the same volatility. The difference compared with previous parameterizations is the multiplicative modelling of volatility and the fact that shocks are measured relative to their standard deviation.
