Moving estimates test with time varying bandwidth
In this paper, we consider the problem of testing for parameter changes in time series models based on a moving estimates (ME) test. It is widely accepted that detecting some changes, for instance, those caused by temporary parameter shifts by the existing cusum test is difficult. A MV test with a fixed bandwidth has been developed to circumvent the defect, but the test still does not perform well under certain conditions. Motivated by this, we propose a MV test with a time varying bandwidth to outperform the original test. In order to illustrate our findings, we have provided simulation results.
