We use numerous high-frequency transaction data sets to evaluate the forecasting performances of several dynamic ordinal-response time series models with generalized autoregressive conditional heteroscedasticity (GARCH). The specifications account for three components: leverage effects, in-mean effects and moving average error terms. We estimate the model parameters by developing Markov chain Monte Carlo algorithms. Our empirical analysis shows that the proposed ordinal-response GARCH models achieve better point and density forecasts than standard benchmarks.
