I can't say much about Garch/SV being better or worse but I know that's
there an approximate functional equivalence between exponential smoothing
and a regular moving average ( i.e: rolling window ). It's something like
lambda = 1/(2n +1) or something like that but I don't remember. It's in any
decent technical analysis book and it's true empirically because I've played
around with it in the past.

I've heard opinions that GARCH/SV volatility models
are not better on forecasting than simple exponential
moving average volatilities or even rolling window
Any practitioners mind comment?
