Abstract

We provide a familiy of tests for the IID hypothesis based on generalized runs, powerful against unspecified alternatives, providing a useful complement to test designed for specific alternatives, such as serial correlation, GARCH, or structural breaks. Our tests have appealing computational simplicity in that they do not require kernel density estimation, with the associated challenge of bandwidth selection. Simulations show levels close to nominal asymptotic levels.Our tests have power against both dependent and heterogeneous alternatives, as both theory and simulations demonstrate.
