Simulation Based Inference in Moving Average Models
We examine several autoregressive-based estimators for the parameters of a moving average process, including the estimators initially proposed by Galbraith and Zinde-Walsh  and Gouriéroux, Monfort and Renault . We also propose over-identified asymptotic-least-squares based variants of the former, and extensions of the latter based on Gallant and Tauchen's  simulated method of moments. The relative performance of these estimators is assessed, with emphasis on the near-uninvertibility region. We find that, although no formal local-to-one arguments are taken into consideration, the Wald-type indirect inference method performs best at the boundary, with practically just one calibration.
