Robust Testing for Fractional Integration Using the Bootstrap
Asymptotic tests for fractional integration are usually badly sized in small samples, even for normally distributed processes. Furthermore, tests that are well-sized under normality may be severely distorted by non-normalities and ARCH errors. This paper demonstrates how the bootstrap can be implemented to correct for such size distortions. It is shown that a well-designed bootstrap test based on the MRR and GPH tests is exact, and a procedure based on the REG test is nearly exact.
