Testing For Skewness In Ar Conditional Volatility Models For Financial Return Series
AbstractIn this paper a test procedure is proposed for the skewness in autoregressive conditional volatility models. The size and the power of the test are investigated through a series of Monte Carlo simulations with various models. Furthermore, applications with financial data are analyzed in order to explore the applicability and the capabilities of the proposed testing procedure.
