The Volatility of U.S. Term Structure Term Premia 1952-1991
AbstractRecent studies suggest that the term premia within the U.S. Term Structure of Interest Rates may be adequately characterised as univariate GARCH (1,1)-M processes, with highly persistent or even potentially explosive conditional variances. Tzavalis and Wickens (1995) using data over the period 1970-1996 argue that such findings may be the result of the failure of the GARCH-M model to allow for the 1979-1982 change in U.S. monetary policy.
