ARCH and GARCH models vs. martingale volatility of finance market returns
ARCH and GARCH models assume either i.i.d. or 'white noise' as is usual in regression analysis, while also assuming memory in a conditional mean square fluctuation with stationary increments. We will show that ARCH/GARCH is inconsistent with uncorrelated increments, violating the i.i.d. and 'white' assumptions, and violating finance data and the efficient market hypothesis as well.
