Semi-parametric quantile estimation for double threshold autoregressive models with heteroskedasticity
Compared to the conditional mean or median, conditional quantiles provide a more comprehensive picture of a variable in various scenarios. A semi-parametric quantile estimation method for a double threshold auto-regression with exogenous regressors and heteroskedasticity is considered, allowing representation of both asymmetry and volatility clustering. As such, GARCH dynamics with nonlinearity are added to a nonlinear time series regression model. An adaptive Bayesian Markov chain Monte Carlo scheme, exploiting the link between the quantile loss function and the asymmetric-Laplace distribution, is employed for estimation and inference, simultaneously estimating and accounting for nonlinear heteroskedasticity plus unknown threshold limits and delay lags. A simulation study illustrates sampling properties of the method. Two data sets are considered in the empirical applications: modelling daily maximum temperatures in Melbourne, Australia; and exploring dynamic linkages between financial markets in the US and Hong Kong.
