The ability to obtain accurate volatility forecasts is an important issue for the financial analyst. In this paper, we use the DAN2 model, a multilayer perceptronand an ARCH model to predict the monthly conditional variance of stock prices.The results show that DAN2 model is more accurate for predicting in-sample andout-of-sample variance that the other considered models for the used data set. Thus, the value of this neural network as a predictive tool is demonstrated.
