La hipótesis de las expectativas en el largo plazo: evidencia en el mercado español de deuda pública

Registered author(s):

    En el presente trabajo se contrasta la Hipótesis de las Expectativas en los plazos más largos de la estructura temporal de tipos de interés. Para ello se aplica la metodología propuesta en Campbell y Shiller (1987, 1991), basada en la obtención de predicciones de los futuros cambios en los tipos de interés mediante un vector autorregresivo, a estimaciones no paramétricas de la curva de tipos cupón-cero. Los resultados muestran evidencia a favor de la Hipótesis de las Expectativas y que el diferencial de tipos es un buen estimador de los cambios futuros de los tipos de interés también en el largo plazo.
