Modelling day-of-the-week seasonality in the S&P 500 index
A time series model is proposed that describes the day-of-the-week seasonality in returns as well as in volatility of the daily S&P 500 index. The model is a periodic autoregression with periodically integrated GARCH [PAR-PIGARCH]. With this statistically adequate model, positive (negative) autocorrelation is found in the returns on Monday (Tuesday). Day-of-the-week variation in the persistence of volatility is also found.
