I suggest you read the book Nonlinear models in Empirical Finance by Franses
and van Dijk. All of the answers to your questions are there.

Subject: [R-SIG-Finance] Models Choosing



I have a time series data, which has obviously structure switching property.
Now I want to use a model to capture its characteristics and find all
influencing factors, then which model should I choose?


Also, what!/s the difference when a stochastic model, a GARCH model and a
Markov-Switching model is used to describe the time series? And what!/s the
most important when I choose from these models? Is there a transformation
mechanism between these model?
