TESTING FOR SKEWNESS IN AR CONDITIONAL VOLATILITY MODELS FOR FINANCIAL RETURN SERIES
() and Alex Karagrigoriou
Abstract: In this paper a test procedure is proposed for the
skewness in autoregressive conditional volatility models. The size and the
power of the test are investigated through a series of Monte Carlo
simulations with various models. Furthermore, applications with financial
data are analyzed in order to explore the applicability and the
capabilities of the proposed testing procedure.
