Small sample properties of alternative tests for martingale difference hypothesis
AbstractA Monte Carlo experiment is conducted to compare power properties of alternative tests for the martingale difference hypothesis. Overall, we find that the wild bootstrap automatic variance ratio test shows the highest power against linear dependence; while the generalized spectral test performs most desirably under nonlinear dependence.
