Spurious persistence in stochastic volatility

  • Messow, Philip
  • Krämer, Walter

We show that structural changes in stochastic volatility models induce spurious persistence. Other than in GARCH-type models, implied persistence does not tend to unity with given size of the structural change and increasing sample size.
