This paper explores the application of artificial neural network in volatility forecasting. A recurrent neural network has been integrated in to GARCH model to form the hybrid model called GARCH-Neural model. The emphasis of the research is to investigate the performance of the variants of Backpropagation algorithms in training the proposed GARCH-neural model. In the first place, EGARCH (3, 3) was identified in this paper most preferred model describing crude oil price volatility in Nigeria. Similarly, Levenberg-Marquardt (LM) training algorithms were found to be fastest in convergence and also provide most accurate predictions of the volatility when to other training techniques.
