Summary: We propose an adaptive algorithm for tracking historical volatility. The algorithm borrows ideas from nonparametric statistics. In particular, we assume that the volatility is a several times differentiable function with a bounded highest derivative. We propose an adaptive algorithm with a Kalman filter structure, which guarantees the same asymptotics (well known from statistical inference) with respect to the sample size \(n\), \(n \rightarrow \infty\). The tuning procedure for this filter is simpler than for a GARCH filter.
