Abstract
This study outlines and compares approaches for estimating time-varying optimal hedge ratios with or without implied volatility on futures markets. These time-varying methods are applied to compare the outcomes using out-of-sample performance evaluations. The hedging performance for the models with IV outperfom the traditional models without IV under out-of-sample analysis. This finding is valuable in the sense that it suggests that the investors may need to adjust their hedging strategies using different hedging models and taking IV into account according to the trend or patterns of price movements.
