Distribución de los rendimientos del mercado mexicano accionario
AbstractWe show an empirical study to compare the Normal, t-Student and the Normal Inverse Gaussian (NIG) distributions. This is made for the Mexican stock market returns. The parameters of the NIG and t-Student distributions are estimated by maximum likelihood. The rejection of normality is contundent using the omnibus test. The results are very clear: the adjustment of the NIG distribution is better than the adjustment for the Normal distribution. At the same time we used de Kolmogorov-Smirnov test to compare t-Student and NIG distributions.
